If you had to pick one West Ham player from the 1993 squad who would you choose?  Quite a specific question I know but it's one Chris Scull answered in interview for Your First Football Shirt.

Chris, Michael & Josh from Quickly Kevin shared their first and favourite shirts for Your First Football Shirt – a book of 30 interviews and illustrations raising money for CALM + Willow.

What was your first football shirt?

A West Ham 1993 home shirt that I got in the club store and I can still remember the smell of the club store, it was so exciting, and I had Martin Allen put on the back.

At the time, his name was on the back as "Allen M." – I don't know why, it's not a thing. That was my first ever shirt; it was lovely.

What is your favourite football shirt?

Weirdly, I think it was the 1992 England red away. I think we might have worn it for Euro 92, that was the best England kit I think we've ever had. Really deep red with the blue collar.

My other one, I liked the Arsenal '92 yellow-and-black away kit. People hate that, I love it! I saw Dennis Pennis [played by Paul Kaye] once at Highbury wearing it, and that really cemented in my opinion that it was one of the greatest shirts of all time.
