Description
Yellow shirts with wing collars, with black double-stripe sleeve trim, yellow Admiral logo and England crest. Black shorts with yellow double-stripe side trim. Black socks with yellow trim.
Most Appearances Four England goalkeepers wore this uniform. Ray Clemence, with 47 appearances, wore it the most. Peter Shilton made twelve appearances in the uniform, and Jimmy Rimmer appeared in it for just 45 minutes in his one and only England international. Joe Corrigan won the first of his nine caps as a half-time substitute for Rimmer and made four more appearances in the uniform.
Clean Sheets

 

 

The shorts and socks were black, with two yellow stripes down the seam of the shorts and across the tops of the socks.

A red number '1', in the same style as on the back of the 1974 white shirt and the 1976 red shirt, was worn on the back of the jersey.

This same design was also worn from 1976-79 by the Welsh international goalkeepers, mainly Dai Davies. The shorts and socks were identical, whilst the jersey differed in that the emblem was placed in the middle of the chest, there were two Admiral logos instead of one (placed on each side of the collar) and the number 1 on the back was black instead of red.  From the beginning of the 1977-78 season, the number on the back of the England jersey changed to black and, curiously enough, by the time England played in Cardiff in the 1978 British Championship, the number on the Welsh jersey had changed to red!

 

The Changing Face of the 1974 Yellow Goalkeeper Uniform
Peter Shilton lines up against Czechoslovakia on November 29th, 1978 at Wembley.
The bitterly cold night and bone-dry pitch prompted him to wear tracksuit trousers.
Ray Clemence demands a two-man defensive wall, against Scotland at Wembley, on May 26th, 1979. Ray Clemence stands for the National Anthem, before defending England's goal against Spain, on June 18th, 1980, in Naples. Kit manufacturers were not allowed to display their logos in the European Championship tournament. However, a keen eye may just spot that Clemence was wearing an Umbro t-shirt underneath! 'Big Joe' Corrigan displays Admiral's new red, white and blue logo in the Wembley clash with Scotland on May 23rd, 1981.
