Nathan Doyle joined The Tigers from Derby County in January 2007 and made his City debut on the final day of the 2006/07 campaign, a 2-1 loss to Plymouth. He made the bench several times before that first appearance however, necessitating the kitman to print up shirts, shorts and training wear with Doyle’s squad number 2 soon after he arrived.
One of those items was these alternate shorts. Amber alts were used with the home shirt at Sheffield Wednesday and Luton Town in 2006/07, though Doyle didn’t even make the bench in those games. Therefore these shorts are ‘match issued’, but were never ‘match worn’.
