JOHN MAHONEY

WALES (Home 1967-72) v ENGLAND Home International Championship 1967-68

This all red Umbro home long sleeve Wales shirt was worn by John Mahoney on his international debut in the old Home International Championship tournament match against England at Ninnian Park, Cardiff on 21st October 1967. The shirt is unwashed, still carries the famous old stadium's mud stains. The reigning world champions ran out 3-0 winners on the day.

It is a Umbro Aztec manufactured shirt, made using the Umbro Tangeru shrink resistant cotton, the plain red style used by the Welsh team between 1967 and 1974. This particular shirt has the larger Heraldic Crest used on these shirts until 1972. A small size Crest was then used on the same style shirt between 1972 and 1974.  The Umbro "Choice of Champions" printed logo appears on the outside bottom of the shirt, with the yellow cloth, stitch applied number 9 to the reverse. I obtained this shirt from Sporting Pastimes owner Alec in 2010 and it comes with a signed letter from John Mahoney confirming the shirts provenance.
