A question about Football Home Shirts

Discussion in 'Sports, Adventure Training and Events' started by wellyhead, Nov 13, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Been asked a trivia question today about a team that is allowed to wear their home strip at any football ground, the feeling its military/Royal connected

    Anyone know ?
     
  2. IIRC its Notts county as founder members of the footy league?
     
  3. I'm almost sure its Preston North End, as winners of the first football league.
     
  4. checked up a bit more, apparently it used to be two teams,
    Reading [for their Royal connection] and Preston North End, for winning the league and cup double in 1889 but I think PNE was a short term thingy and no longer 'applies'
     
  5. Cheers for that, the guy that posed the question was looking for Reading

    However I couldn't find a lot on that and they do have away shirts

    Anyway the Royal connection is a bit week really, it was because they were formed in the Royal County of Berkshire
     
  6. Sheffield F.C.?
    The oldest club in the world.
