Para Hills Knights SC 0[0]-[2]4 Adelaide United FC

Crowd close to 2000 :D Goal scores were Lucas and Vidmar.

First half hour was woeful and the Knights should of been in the lead. Two golden chances, one smashing into the cross bar with Beltrame beaten. United's first goal was against the run of play late in the first half, and scored again a couple of minutes later. Second half was all United with the Knights hardly getting in sight of goals.

That's what Para get for cutting me :shades:

They'll be releasing new kits in early August (all clubs will be supplied with Reebok kits) but I imagine they won't change much. I wouldn't be surprised if they're pretty much the same thing as Liverpool's kit is:



But instead with a bit of blue and yellow in it.

Probably to coincide with some big function they'll have, like a proper 'season launch'. The three ex-NSL clubs will be using their ones from the last NSL season in the world club championship qualifiers, I assume.

See i don't agree with that idea. They should be 100% ready and functional before their WCC qualifiers and that includes having the proper kits but anyway they don't care what we think

Do you think that they'll be wearing the old top for the up-coming tournament in may, or might the clubs playing in that get to wear their tops then...
That'd be cool

It'll be interested to see what the strips will look like in the WCC and pre-season tournament if they aren't officially released until August. Is that a release date to the public or the clubs able to wear them themselves?
