LEE NAYLOR

Home (25-Sep-2011) versus Leicester City

One of Lee Naylor's rare appearances for Cardiff under Malky Mackay was a 0 - 0 draw against one of the Championship promotion favourites Leicester City. This shirt was obtained direct from the club when all players generously donated their match shirts for auction with all monies raised going to the families of victims of the Gleision Colliery disaster in Swansea where four miners tragically lost their lives.

  


 

CRAIG CONWAY

Home (5-November-2011) versus Crystal Palace

Craig Conway's shirt from a home 2 - 0 win against Crystal Palace. In a season where we played Palace on 4 occasions including a memorable semi final win which took us back to Wembley for the fourth time in just four years. The shirt was obtained direct from the club with monies raised getting donated to the Royal British Legion.   

 


ROBERT EARNSHAW

Away (Player Issue)

Robert Earnshaw was a crowd favourite from the very beginning and as well as an a great goal scoring record for Cardiff he's got the unique record as being the only player to have scored a hat-trick in the Premier League, all three divisions of the English Football League, the League Cup, the FA Cup, and for his country in an international match.

 


ROBERT EARNSHAW

Home (Player Issue)

The 2nd Robert Earnshaw shirt in my collection. Robert Earnshaw was a crowd favourite from the very beginning and as well as an a great goal scoring record for Cardiff he's got the unique record as being the only player to have scored a hat-trick in the Premier League, all three divisions of the English Football League, the League Cup, the FA Cup, and for his country in an international match.

 


SOLOMON TAIWO

Home (Player Issue)

Long Sleeve player issue shirt of Cardiff player Solomon Taiwo. Taiwo was bought by manager Dave Jones and was described as a promising player - Unfortunately Taiwo played just a handful of times and was mostly sent out on loan to lower league clubs.

 


BEN TURNER

Home (Player Issue)

Ben Turner player Issue shirt. Turner will be known for 2 reasons for his spell at Cardiff City. The first will his huge cross field pass from the left hand side of the pitch over to the right wing. Secondly that memorable equalizing goal against Liverpool in the Carling Cup Final at Wembley. Shirt is flagged as Player Issue but was certainly Match Worn with mud stains all over the shirt.

 

 


PAUL QUINN

3rd Shirt (Player Issue?)

Paul Quinn prepared 3rd shirt. Shirt contains the same letterings as a genuine player issue shirt but does not have the NPOWER arm patches that are worn during games. At closer inspection you can see that the 14 is not aligned on the back of the shirt so it's my belief that this was a printing error by the kitman and got rejected as an issue shirt for the player.

 


ANTHONY GERRARD

Home (Player Issue - Carling Cup Final) versus Liverpool

A great addition to my collection but only a spare for the game unfortunately. Cardiff prepared specially printed shirts for the Carling Cup Final against Liverpool. In a nail biting finish Gerrard unfortunately missed a penalty that saw Liverpool snatch the cup in a 3-2 win during a penalty shootout. Although Gerrard played a huge part in the rounds leading up to the final he was not a faourite of manager Malky Mackay and came on as a substitute.

 


DAVID MARSHALL

Home (Player Issue - Carling Cup Final) versus Liverpool

A fantastic addition to my collection. Match prepared and Bench worn shirt of Goalkeeper David Marshall. Even though Marhsall was number 1 for the season, Tom Heaton played all of the Carling Cup matches. A fantastic shirt added that was never produced as a replica. Contains unique sponsor on the back and match details on the front of the shirt.

 


KEVIN MCNAUGHTON

Home (04-March-2012) Verus West Ham United

Kevin Mcnaughton Match Worn Charity shirt that was worn versus West Ham United at the Cardiff City Stadium. The game was played on the 4th of March 2012 and Cardiff lost the game 2 - 0. The Shirt was printed with the St David's hospice logo under the badge.

 

 


JOE MASON

Home (Player Issue) Unknown

Unfortunately not the shirt that Joe wore when he scored that Carling cup final goal against Liverpool. No details on this shirt but shows all details highlighting that this is a genuine player issue shirt.

 

 


DARCY BLAKE

3rd Shirt (Player Issue)

Darcy Blake player issue 3rd shirt. Shirt contains all the correct letterings and print sizes of a genuine player issue shirt. No match details on the shirt but appears to be worn with Malaysia printing peeling off from the back which was quite common on the player shirts that season.

 

 


KENNY MILLER

Away Shirt (11-February-2012) versus Leicester City

Match Worn shirt of Cardiff striker Kenny Miller - Shirt was worn against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium in a 2-1 loss. It would probably be safe to say that Cardiff players probably had the upcoming Carling cup final at Wembley on their minds

 

 


MARK HUDSON

Home (5-November-2011) versus Crystal Palace

Mark Hudson's shirt from a home 2 - 0 win against Crystal Palace. In a season where we played Palace on 4 occasions including a memorable semi final win which took us back to Wembley for the fourth time in just four years. The shirt was obtained direct from the club with monies raised getting donated to the Royal British Legion.

 


 

MARK HUDSON

Away (7-April-2011) versus Middlesbrough

Mark Hudson shirt from the 2 - 0 away win versus Middlesbrough. This shirt was given to me directly from Mark Hudson as match worn but I believe that the shirt was his spare, as pictures from the game clearly show mud and stains from the grass whereas this shirt came to me just 2 days after the game and was clearly in a clean and washed condition.

 

 


 

DAVID MARSHALL

Away (7-May-2012) versus West Ham United

David Marshall's final match worn shirt from the 2011/2012 season. West Ham United were comfortable winners against the bluebirds at both home and away in the semi final play offs.  The Hammers went on to win the final at Wembley to gain promotion. The shirt was obtained from a lucky fan who caught it when Marshall threw it into the crowd at the end of the game.  


 

STEPHEN McPHAIL

Away (25-Mar-2012) versus Birmingham City

One of my favourite shirts in my collection due to me obtaining this shirt direct from a Birmingham player who I pre planned to swap for me at the end of the game. The game finished 1 -1  with a Mark Hudson volley that any centre forward would be proud of.

  


 

KENNY MILLER

Away (7-May-2012) versus West Ham United

Scottish International Kenny Miller's last ever match for Cardiff City. Nobody can doubt the record and goal ratio that Miller had prior to playing for Cardiff, but playing as a lone striker under Malky Mackay did not win the plaudits or get the goals that he deserved. This shirt was obtained from a genuine contact and good friend of Kenny Miller.
