|TEAM||Estrela do Norte||SEASON(S)||2011|
|HOME/AWAY||Home||COUNTRY||Brazil Espirito Santo|
I have no more than a vague notion of Portuguese but even that would lead me to assume that this club's name translated into English as "Star of the North". I was surprised to find out then that they are from the town of Cachoeiro de Itapemirim in the southern part of Espirito Santo state in South Eastern Brazil. It's nowhere near the north of anything! The club are usually found in state tournaments although have occasionally popped up in the lower reaches of national competitions. It's a traditional style of shirt and the star shaped badge is a nice touch. Obrgiado to my amigo Bira for sending me this fine shirt from a delightfully obscure manufacturer.
