    Your first football shirt can often be a strange or random shirt, often bought by parents or passed down from older siblings. But every now and then we get someone telling us about their first ever football shirt and turns out to be an absolute classic.

    The happened when we spoke to Annie Eaves for our My First Football Shirt series. We spoke about snowflake kits, laced-up collars and last-minute goals. 

    What was you first ever football shirt?  

    Manchester United away, think it was about 1990. It was the awful blue and white Adidas crest one which many hate but it is nostalgic for me.

    What was your favourite ever football shirt?  

    Manchester United home 1992, the tie up one. Just great memories of the football played in it and the club’s rise at the time. I also liked Croatia’s kit, when they first came into international football and their red and white squares became well known. The pride many had in that shirt was obvious, even to a youngster. 

     

    What is your favourite ever goal?  

    For emotion, Teddy Sheringham against Bayern Munich in the Champions League final. All was lost but I still had a bit of belief and when he scored that, the feeling was amazing. Scrappy goal but I will never forget it.

     

    Thanks to Annie for speaking with us!
