Berwick Rangers have announced that ahead of the 50th anniversary of the club’s historic 1-0 victory over Glasgow Rangers – in what is still widely regarded as one of the biggest Scottish Cup shocks of all time – they have agreed a deal with retro kit manufacturer Toffs to sell replicas of the shirts worn on that day via Berwick’s official online store.
Available now for £40, the shirts would make a brilliant Christmas gift for the older Berwick fan, or even a wonderful momento for the younger supporter. As the shirts come in a range of sizes, from small to XXXL there should be a size for everyone!
Whilst fans can purchase from the club’s online store now, they would also advise supporters they can personalise the shirt with a name (£5) and number (£5) should they order from Toffs’ own site, http://www.toffs.com/catalog/product/view/id/33272/s/berwick-rangers-1967-cup-v-glasow-rangers/category/115/
The strips were worn in front of 13,000 fans in January 1967, a crowd attendance record which remains with the club to this day.
Buyers are advised that there is a production and delivery period of up to 28 days with all Toffs purchases and as such those looking to purchase a 1967 shirt as a Christmas present are advised to do so ASAP to guarantee delivery.
