Every so often, a football kit comes along that makes you realise that the "everything including the kitchen sink" aesthetic of blindingly ugly early-to-mid 1990s kit design isn't quite dead yet.
La Hoya Lorca's new 2013-14 away kit is one such beauty -- being, chiefly, as it is inspired by broccoli.

Allow us to explain: La Hoya Lorca (who play in the Segunda Division B, Spain's third tier) have launched their broccoli kit as a tribute to their region of Murcia, nicknamed "the vegetable garden of Spain." It boasts particularly strong agricultural roots, with broccoli apparently being the area's most successful export the last few years.
La Hoya Lorca actually wore a broccoli kit last season and went on to win the league. So in a bid to keep the streak alive, the club decided to keep the veggie motif on their away strip for this season, while revamping the design slightly.
As a result, lower-league fans have begun referring to the club as "El Brocoli Mecanico", which translates as The Clockwork Broccoli, which is, of course, absolutely brilliant!
