Another shirt from left field comes to the blog in the shape of a British Army shirt – and what an awesome one it is.
I believe this is the Army’s home shirt which they used in matches a couple of years ago. If you didn’t know, the Army team is based at the Clayton Barracks in Aldershot and they mainly play against the other British forces such as the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force.
They recently lost 3-2 to the RAF in the 2014 Inter Services and Constantinople Cup final which was the RAF’s seventh consecutive championship. You could say they’re flying high. Sorry, I couldn’t resist!
The Army side also compete in the Southern Counties Cup against Middlesex FA, Amateur FA, Sussex FA and Royal Navy FA as well as the Grenadier Guards Trophy against the Metropolitan Police.
I’d like to thank Thomas (@FootballShirt11) for swapping this, as well as another, great shirt with me. It’s made by Umbro and is a lovely looking shirt. It’s very detailed and includes the Royal British Legion logo on the left arm as well as the Army logo on the nape. Thanks again to Thomas for allowing me to add such a cool shirt to the collection!
