Oldham players told not to swap jerseys because they’re running out!

February 17th, 2013

Sometimes, a story like this best shows the huge difference in resources between Premier League clubs and their minnow opponents in the FA Cup. On Saturday, Oldham players were advised by their equipment manager to not swap shirts with Everton players as is customary after the match, because of a shortage of team kits!

However, after the dramatic finish, most Oldham players couldn’t help themselves.

From the Daily Mail:

[A]fter Matt Smith’s injury-time equaliser, there was a rush to swap jerseys with their Premier League opposition, with midfielder Jose Baxter claiming the prized shirt of England full back Leighton Baines, a former Goodison Park team-mate.

‘We all got carried away and didn’t really think about the notice,’ said Baxter. ‘I just hope we’ve got enough kit for Tuesday.’

Smith chucked his shirt into the crowd after scoring.
