CHRIS GUNTER

Wales Away (2009-11) v Estonia friendly 2009

This white Champion (JJB) design -the new kit supplier to be used by FAW until 2014!- is officially the 2nd choice away shirt, strangely launched after the 3rd yellow away shirt, and first worn in the home friendly 1-0 win over Estonia. This is Chris Gunter's long sleeve spare shirt from the historic game, played for the first time a Wales Senior team ever played a match at Llanelli Scarlets RFC's Parc Y Scarlets superb new Rugby Union stadium, on 29th May 2009. 

The shirt itself carries all the specifications that confirm it as a players shirt, with all the differences from that of a replica of the same design. The shirt carries the usual match detail embroidery under the National Crest as seen on players shirts, "Estonia, 29.05.09 Gem 570", the back number with the incorporated national crest at the bottom and no Sleeve badge to the right arm, due to it being a friendly fixture. Obtained directly from a exceptional football contact so provenance not in question.
