Blues and Reds signed match shirts auctioned in aid of Royal British Legion appeal

Blues and Reds signed match shirts auctioned in aid of Royal British Legion appeal

Signed Everton match shirts from three fixtures – two Premier League and one Carabao Cup – are being auctioned to raise money for the Royal British Legion.

The games against Leicester and Bournemouth haven’t gone as Blues fans would have hoped, with a couple of disappointing losses last weekend and midweek, but the Forces charity is still in line for a big win from the online bidding.

And there’s always the Premier League game against Bournemouth this Saturday to go, so there’s still a chance to get a winning bit of kit!

Shirts from Liverpool Women’s Barclays Women’s Super League match versus Aston Villa last Sunday are also up for charity auction.

The shirts have all been specially-made to coincide with Remembrance Sunday, which this year falls on November 13, and feature embroidered poppies on the front next to the club crest.

Each of the players signed their match shirts after the games, ready to be donated and go live on auction site matchwornshirt.com. Each individual auction began at the kick-off of the fixture.

Funds raised from the bidding will all go to the Royal British Legion, which is England’s largest Armed Forces charity, working to benefit more than 180,000 members of the Armed Forces community and making sure their contribution is never forgotten.

They provide lifelong support to those who are still serving, to veterans and their families, which could be anything from recovery and rehabilitation to transitioning to civilian life and financial support through new and expanded cost of living grants.

The auction of Blues shirts from the Leicester match has so far raised more than £6,000. Fans are going to have to dig deep if they fancy owning the ones worn by goalie Jordan Pickford – his is currently attracting the highest bid – Alex Iwobi and Anthony Gordon. 

But with the whole squad up for grabs, there are plenty to choose from and bids start at just over £100.

For anyone not wanting a particular player, there’s a framed limited edition Blues poppy shirt which features the club logo at the top and a special poppy plate at the bottom.

It’s not only Everton men’s and women’s teams supporting the Royal British Legon’s appeal this year, Liverpool are also giving their backing to it by donating shirts from the upcoming match against Southampton at Anfield. That auction will go live from 3pm on Saturday when the game kicks off.

To see which shirts are available and how much they’re going for, to make a bid and support the Legon, go to the website here.
