Liam Lawrence is giving away a match-worn shirt from his career in a bid to raise a smile in difficult times.
The Stoke City hero has pulled together some of his prized memorabilia this afternoon and his youngest son will be picking out a winner at random this evening from anyone who re-Tweets his post.
The shirts include one of his own from Stoke, a signed shirt from Tuncay and a top signed by the whole squad in 2006/07 that just missed out on the Championship play-offs.
He has a Republic of Ireland shirt too from when he played against Algeria, one of Hernan Crespo’s from Chelsea and Nilmar’s shirt from when Ireland took on Brazil at the Emirates.
And there’s a France one in the mix too – worn by Patrice Evra on the night of that infamous Thierry Henry handball in Paris during World Cup qualifying.
Lawrence, a regular pundit on Stoke this season, said: “I bet you’re thinking, ‘What’s this whopper doing in his garage?’
“But I’ve gone through a few of my old shirts that I used to play in and some that I played against. There’s all sorts that I’ll show you; Irish ones, a Real Madrid one worn by Ramos, Portsmouth, Stoke, Cardiff, Shrewsbury, Mansfield…
“I’ll get my youngest son to pick out one of the re-Tweeters and that random one will be able to pick one of the shirts. I’ll get in touch and I’ll sort the postage out and everything and get it on its way to you.”
