The first addition to the blog in a while but it’s one worth waiting for. It’s another match worn shirt and another addition from the island of Saaremaa.
If you want to find out more about Saaremaa and their club FC Kuressaare, please check out my other shirt post.
This particular shirt is their home jersey and it was match worn in the 2007 Island Games in Rhodes. Unfortunately it wasn’t a very successful tournament for the Estonian island as they lost to the hosts 2-0 and the Norwegian municipality of Frøya 3-2 to go out at the group stage. Gibraltar would go on to win the competition, their first success.
I’d like to extend thanks once again to Saaremaa and FC Kuressaare legend Martti Pukk who went out of his way to help me – he is a true gent and part of the reason why I am now following Kuressaare as they battle to win promotion back into Estonia’s top-flight.
