I also have the z jersey, it gets an annual day out about now :)
That Brian Rourke is exactly like my Panasonic Sportlife jersey!
There was, and probably still is, a bit of a tradition in the UK club scene to copy the design of a pro team and incorporate it into your club kit. Which Rourke did with the final iteration of the Panasonic kit, although think the kit was that worn by the Tunstall Wheelers, as did one of the Liverpool clubs who copied the PDM kit.
Here's mine: The vortex snail, bought off Ebay for that aging hipster doofus look.
Even a doofus has to be careful: I was close to choosing a different shirt emblazoned with "Dopolavoro P.T." until a quick Google revealed "..this programs were known as Dopolavoro and were administrated by a government agency, the Opera Nazionale Dopolavoro (OND). They were closely linked to the Fascist Party, which organized the programs in the local areas."
Yes I remember this back when I was a kid.
Loving this thread by the way. Will dig out some of mine and post them
While we're on the subject of Panasonic/Sportlife I've got the Belgian cap
And this was my first ever jersey. Oliver Somers was a bike shop that sponsored the Wigan Wheelers, though I was not a club member. I bought some Coq Sportif shorts from them as well. They are no longer in business.
Haha! Thats jokes. I'm sure I've seen others in same colours with diff branding as @andyp mentions.
This is as close as I'm gonna get to matching with the Aende
Yes or no?
