Anglian Home Improvements
helloThis shirt was worn at Hampden in March 2008 when they lost to Rangers in penalty kicks, after an exciting C.I.S. Cup Final. The design of the top did not change much for the match, compared to the standard template for season 2007/08. The key differences were the C.I.S. sponsors logo on the arms and embroidered text denoting the event, ‘CIS Cup Final 16th March 2008’ under the club badge.
2007 was the first year that sponsorship logos were allowed on the back of shirts and it was Fat Sam’s nightclub insignia that was positioned just above the player’s name. United continued with the Spanish based real estate company, Ole International, as sponsor on their shorts. This was only the second season United had logo sponsorship on their shorts.United’s main shirt sponsor was again Anglian Home Improvements, the second and final year of the deal. The top was recognisable as a Hummel product due to the black and tangerine chevron design that ran the length of the sleeves. The numbers on the back of the shirt were black with a white trim.
This particular shirt, signed by the cup final squad, was worn by Darren Dods who was an unused substitute that day.
