Sheffield Wednesday have revealed their new third kit was designed by a fan who won a club competition.
To celebrate the club’s 150th anniversary, fans were asked to send in their design ideas for the 2017/18 third kit, which will be dedicated to the landmark.
Hundreds entered the competition and after much deliberation, the winner was announced on the club’s Twitter.
Karl Nuttall’s white and gold design was chosen by the club, receiving immediate plaudits on social media.
Besides hundreds of Owls fans, Sky Sports’ David Garrido and Sheffield Wednesday player Almen Abdi praised Karl’s design on Twitter.

The 27-year-old web designer said: “It was just weird seeing people like that, who you watch on TV everyday, commented on it.
“It’s good to be associated with such a special anniversary, as the kit is going to go down in club history.”
Karl, who is a life-long Wednesday fan, designed the kit on his dinner break using Adobe Photoshop.
