Gillingham manager Mark Stimson has welcomed next season's return of the club's blue and black striped shirts.

Following a supporters' poll, there was a big vote for a return to the "lucky" Inter Milan style team strip.

Stimson told BBC Radio Kent: "We'll look like Inter Milan and hopefully we'll play like them.

"It's what the supporters want and the chairman is willing. If it brings the success the club previously enjoyed that would be great."

The blue and black striped shirts came to be known as Gillingham's lucky strip following promotion seasons in 1996 and 2000.
