Scottish Premier League side Hibernian FC has launched a 2011/12 third or Thistle kit from gear providers PUMA. The release of the new strip follows that of the Hibernian PUMA 11/12 home and away kits during the summer months. The Hibs website describe the new shirt as “a modern interpretation of the famous purple kit from yesteryear”.
Hibernian FC is currently in 10th place in the 2011/12 SPL table with nine points from ten matches played. Last league champions in 1952, the club finished last season in 10th position.
