Liverpool Away football shirt 1988 - 1989
Submitted by: Michael Yip, Added to website on: September 4, 2007
This crew-neck style away shirt is exactly the same as that from the 1987-1988, except for the change of sponsorship from Crownpaints to Candy. This Candy sponsored shirt was only worn for a single season 1988-1989.

First of all, the story must start with a Hummel brand Aston Villa home shirt spanning for two seasons - 1987-1988 and 1988-1989. This shirt has a red / grey-stripped halves design.
Recall what kits we had in these two seasons: red home kit and grey change kit, same design template but different sponsorship logo - Candy took over Crownpaints as the shirt sponsor in season 1988-1989.
Stepping into the season 1988-1989, we still faced the problem of kit colour-clash with Aston Villa's home kit.
However, it was a fresh start of Candy sponsorship season and there was no predecessor white kits available like the Crownpaints era.
Under such circumstances, we couldn't wear the red Candy or grey Candy shirts. We also couldn't wear the same white Crownpaints shirt because of new sponsorship taking off.
Inevitably, Liverpool released a one-off white third shirt with Candy sponsor. This shirt was never released as replicas for sale.

To be exact, the 1988-1989 third white Candy shirt was only worn ONCE on 10 September 1988 against Aston Villa at Villa Park. As we can see, Peter Beardsley played as a substitute and replaced John Barnes in this match. And Peter Beardsley's shirt was a number 12.
Note that Alan Hansen was absent for most of this 1988-1989 season due to injury. He was only fit again to play lately in the Hillsborough F.A. Cup Semi Final on 15 April 1989.
