This short sleeved 2012/13 home shirt was worn by Irish midfielder David Meyler in perhaps the most impressive win of City’s promotion season. City didn’t just beat Leeds, winning 2-0 at the KC Stadium, they dominated them in a game that made any doubters believe that The Tigers were serious contenders for automatic promotion. The sleeves carry the Npower Football League competition appliqués (though only just, they’re hanging off) and on the back of the shirt, a patch of sponsor Scientific Laboratory Supplies sits underneath the Football League font name and numbers.
Meyler scored the second goal in a game played through incessant rain and the shirt is utterly blathered in mud, it still ponged a bit when we first received it. The myriad mud stains correspond to a those shown on match photographs.
