The past few years

About 6 years ago I decided to start collecting Peterborough United shirts. I had just signed up to eBay, and before I knew it I’d got my hands on 6 or 7 Posh shirts. Six years later I am the proud owner of almost a hundred Posh shirts dating back to 1975.

I have uploaded photos of most of them to, a wonderful website that aims to catalogue football shirts from all over the globe.

I have alot of people to thank for helping me accumulate my collection. Especially those who have asked for nothing more than a pint in exchange for a classic 1980s shirt.

My top 5 Peterborough United shirts:

Goalkeeper – 81/82

This was the goalkeeper’s change shirt worn by David Seaman in the 1981/82 season. This was the first year that Posh had a sponsor on their shirts.
Home – 86/87

A classic retro look. The only year we were sponsored by Fairview Homes. I’ve never seen another one of these about.

Home – 77/78

For a couple of seasons in the late 70s we changed our home colours to the Argentina look. My brother bought this one for at the Steve Cooper Memorial Day auction for me when he’d had a bit to drink. I got it signed by Tommy Robson and Colin Foster.

Goalkeeper – 75/77

The oldest shirt in my collection. This was worn by Eric Steele during the 1975-77 seasons.

Away – 94/96

Beautiful, I even managed to find one with yellow sleeves.

  1. Hello mate,

    Just looking at the history of your Posh collection – you’ve got some stunning shirts! I got my first match-worn one in 1978, but then waited until about 2008 to get my second! (A jason Lee one from EBay.) Don’t forget, if you ever want to sell any match-worn shirts, then please drop me an e-mail!

    Anyhow, I think you might have uploaded the wrong shirt for the 77-78 entry on the site – I think that’s my Alan Slough shirt, as it has the patching under the arm…
