CRAIG BELLAMY

Away (17-Aug-2013) versus West Ham United

A real Gem to add to my collection so early in the season. Not only a match worn shirt from Cardiff's first ever Premiership game but the match worn shirt of local hero and captain Craig Bellamy.  Unfortunately the result on the pitch was not so exciting with the Premiership new comers looking very nervous and going on to lose the game 2 - 0.

   


 

STEVEN CAULKER

Home (25-August-2013) versus Manchester City

If the Craig Bellamy shirt was not exciting enough I was lucky enough to get my hands on Caulkers shirt from our first ever Premiership home game.  This game will be remembered forever in the hearts of city fans as we went on to win the game 3 - 2 against the bookies favourite to win the Premiership title. 

 


ARON GUNNARSSON

Home (25-August-2013) versus Manchester City

Just as the above 2 shirts have excellent collector attributes this shirt from Gunnarsson was the match worn shirt that he wore and scored Cardiff's first ever Premiership goal.  The game does not need to be described as it will be remembered forever by all Cardiff City fans.

 


 MARK HUDSON

Home (25-August-2013) (Bench Worn) versus Manchester City

 

Club Captain Mark Hudsons Shirt that was worn on the Bench.

 


ANDREW TAYLOR

Home (05-April-2014) versus Crystal Palace

 

Match Worn shirt of Cardiff Left Back Andrew Taylor. Shirt contains the Cardiff Foundation emblem on the front of the shirt and was sold directly by the club for charity. Cardiff lost the game 3 games to goal but will be remembered more to the fact that the starting line up was leaked to Palace before the game and therefore was rumoured the game would have to be replayed.

 


JOE LEWIS

Home (05-April-2014) versus Crystal Palace

Player Issue shirt of Cardiff backup Goalkeeper Joe Lewis. Lewis was never going to play a big contribution in the 2013/14 season due to the great performances by Cardiff Number 1 David Marshall. Shirt contains the Cardiff Foundation emblem on the front of the shirt and was sold directly by the club for charity. Cardiff lost the game 3 games to goal but will be remembered more to the fact that the starting line up was leaked to Palace before the game and therefore was rumoured the game would have to be replayed.


 

WILFRIED ZAHA

Away (Player Issue)

 

Player Issue shirt of young winger Wilfired Zaha. Zaha was bought by Manchester United after showing great performances for Crystal Palace. Unfortunately he did not fulfil his potentia at Manchester so was giving a loan chance at Cardiff City - I think it was fair to say that he did not live up to his potential at the Cardiff City Stadium either.


 CRAIG NOONE

Away (24-September-2013) versus West Ham United (Carling Cup)

 

Match Worn shirt of Craig Noone from our Carling cup game again West Ham United. Unfortunately it was another loss for Cardiff City but Craig put in a splendid display which included a fantastic goal.

 

 


NICKY MAYNARD

Away (24-Septmber-2013) versus West Ham United (Carling Cup)

 

Match Worn shirt of striker Nicky Maynard. Maynard has unfortunately failed to settle into the first team squad after recovering from a nasty knee injury early on on the 2012/13 Season.

 


 JOE MASON

Home (Player Issue)

Player issue shirt of Joe Mason. Shirt came from a kit man exchange with the Manchester City Kit man during the opening home game of the premiership season.

 

 


ANDREW TAYLOR

Away (9-November-2013) versus Aston Villa

 Match Worn shirt of Left Back Andrew Taylor.  A Special shirt due to it carrying the poppy logo.  All shirts worn during the game were auctioned to raise funds for the Royal British Legion 2013 Poppy Appeal. Cardiff went on to lose the game 2 nil.

 

 


DAVID MARSHALL

Away (11-January-2014) versus Manchester City

Match Worn shirt of goalkeeper David Marshall.  Shirt worn against Premiership giants Manchester City.  Even though Marshall conceded 4 goals during the game he yet again proved that he could possibly be goalkeeper of the year for 2013/14 with many amazing saves throughout this game and previous games throughout the season.

 

 


DAVID MARSHALL

Away (27-April-2014) versus sunderland

Match Worn shirt of Scotland International goalkeeper David Marshall. Shirt was worn in a 4-0 defeat to Sunderland at the Stadium Of Light. This defeat more of less cemented Cardiffs relegation from the premiership after just one season. One highlight of the season was the consistent performances of Marshall. How he was never named in the premiership 11 for the season I really do not know.

 


GARY MEDEL

Away (01-January-2014) versus Arsenal

Match Worn shirt of Chile International Gary Medel.  Shirt was worn against Premiership giants Arsenal in a  0 -2 defeat. Medel was an instant hero with the Cardiff faithful and proved to the world how good he was on the international stage at the 2014 world cup.  After relegation Medel secured a transfer to Italian giants Inter Milan.

 


PETER WHITTINGHAM

Home (30-November-2013) versus Arsenal

Match Worn shirt of long time servant of the club Peter Whittingham.  Shirt was worn against Premiership giants Arsenal at home when Cardiff favourite Aaron Ramsey returned and was applauded by the home fans after scoring a brace for Arsenal in a 3 - 0 defeat.

 


Juan Torres Ruiz (CALA)

Away (27-April-2014) versus Sunderland

Match Worn shirt of defender Juan Cala. The game ended in a 4 nil defeat for Cardiff which more or less sealed relegation for the Bluebirds. The game will be remembemberd for a controversial penalty decision that got Cala sent off. Cala was later charged with misconduct after an incident in the tunnel. Personally I do not think we saw the best of Cala. A typical Spanish player who struggled to play the correct way with poorer players around him but could have excelled with the same quality playing beside him week in week out.

 


DAVID MARSHALL

Home (11-May-2014) versus Chelsea

Match Worn shirt of Cardiff's Number 1 David Marshall. Shirt was worn in final home game of the season against Chelsea. Chelsea went on to win the game 2-1. Shirt was obtained from Match sponsor of the game and was give the shirt directly by David Marshall after the game.

 


 

DON COWIE

Away Player Issue (17-Aug-2013) versus West Ham United

Player issue shirt of unused sub Don Cowie.  Shirt came from a very reliable source and was the shirt issued to Cowie for Cardiff's first ever game in the Barclays Premiership.

 


FRAIZER CAMPBELL

Away (04-January-2014) versus Newcastle united

Match Worn shirt of Striker Fraizer Campbell. This FA Cup game ended in a 2-1 win for Cardiff City with Campbell scoring the winner in the 80th minute. This game was the first game for new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Solskjaer made his name as a deadly substitute striker at Manchester United and he introduced Campbell in the second half to earn Cardiff a place in the fourth round for the first time in four seasons.
