We spoke to England legend Alan Shearer about football shirts and its fair to say he loves Newcastle United shirts.
What was your first shirt?
My first shirt was the Newcastle United 1982 shirt (with Umbro running down the sleeve). My favourite player was Kevin Keegan, so I wanted the same shirt as him.
What is your favourite shirt?
The Newcastle United 1996 shirt (made by Adidas). It’s the first time I wore (a Newcastle United shirt) after watching and supporting, so the first time I put it on.
What is your favourite football moment?
Scoring my record-breaking goal in front of the Gallowgate. I can’t describe the feeling, it was just very, very special. Jackie Milburn was my dad’s hero, now I had his record. And at the Gallowgate End where I stood and supported Newcastle United as a kid.
