Orion FC query

Post by HistoryDave » Sat Jan 27, 2007 7:42 pm

Does anyone know what colours Orion FC wore? They merged with Victoria Utd and the original Aberdeen to form the modern Aberdeen in 1904. I have kits for Victoria and the old Aberdeen but would like to add Orion to the site.

Details I have on Orion's colours were that they wore Bismarck (!) shirts from 1887-89 (I think this was a rusty brown colour) before switching to maroon & white stripes thereafter. I have a note saying that they fluctuated between dark blue & black shorts during their existence.

There's an explanation of Bismarck brown on Wikipedia
