Why the white kit ? I thought we only wore white once at the turn of the century ?

Brentford wore white from 1920/21 to 1924/25.

I believe the away team wore their home strip in the FA Cup and the home team had to change to their Away colours if there was a clash of colours. Brentford’s wore white shirts, their second strip.

Didn't realise it was for that long. Is there a reason we chose white ?

And home team changing to away kit , strange rule
