Paul has uncovered evidence that the blue third kit which we believed had been worn between 1961-1964 did not exist and it has been removed from the season pages for those years. The kit was actually a change kit, first worn on September 19th 1964 at Stoke. It became United's third kit in the seasons thereafter.
