Bristol Rovers are going all Arabian as they celebrate their 125th anniversary.

Rovers have come up with a third-choice kit, which is a reproduction of the club's famous Black Arabs outfit from 1883.

It will be worn for the anniversary celebration game against Swindon Town on November 22.

The strip, a black shirt with a yellow sash, has been registered as Rovers' official third strip and will only ever be used for that match.

And although the kit went on sale less than two weeks ago, more than 300 have already been sold and the club expect to double that figure before the
Swindon clash.

A club spokesperson said: "We expect to sell out before our anniversary game.

"We had a similar version a few years ago, which was very popular with fans, and have aimed to make this one even more authentic.

"A number of other items are being released to celebrate the landmark, including Black Arab scarves, caps, T-shirts and polo shirts.

Rovers were formed in September 1883 following a meeting in an Eastville restaurant.

They were originally called the Black Arabs because of the kit - and because they played on a pitch next to a rugby team called the Arabs.
