THE JERSEY-REF

  • Anthony Buttimer seems to have a bit of a shirt hang-up. In 2007 there were problems when Buttimer found both goalies' jerseys the wrong colour in a Dundalk - Shelbourne match. One of the teams' managers even went to a shop to try to buy a new shirt. One goal keeper ended up wearing a training top and the other a T-shirt with a strip of tape on the back indicating the number 1.
    In 2008 Buttimer deemed Sligo's shirts the wrong colour making them play in their opponent's (St Pat's) away-shirts. Something that did not make their sponsor very happy.
