Scarborough Athletic have begun selling replicas of the infamous Scarborough FC shirt sponsored by Black Death Vodka that was banned by the Football League.

The club have teamed up with The Old Fashioned Football Shirt Company (TOFFS), who already sell a 1970s Scarborough shirt, to manufacture an exact copy of the shirt that gained notoriety in 1990 for the dripping blood text, deemed unacceptable by the football authorities.

The shirt is available for pre-order and is already generating wide interest in the football world from Boro supporters, nostalgia buffs, shirt collectors and a new generation of fans.

Club General Manager, Aaron Best said: “This has taken over a year of hard work and negotiation with TOFFS and the trademark owner to bring to fruition. The original shirt is a very rare

item and we are sure our fans and football shirt collectors around the world will welcome the opportunity to own a piece of football history.”
