Home colours
Notts continued to turn out in black & white stripes with the big 1970's style collar flaps. Black shorts, white socks.
Change colours
Photographs of County playing at Leeds in the League Cup show them wearing an Umbro design of yellow shirts with a
broad green vertical panel, green shorts and yellow socks (no badge), though this was apparently the last time they wore
this strip. Notts then changed to a yellow and green Admiral shirt with one green stripe down the right hand side, there
are photographs of the team playing in this strip at Bristol Rovers and Portsmouth.
