|TEAM||Galo Maringa||SEASON(S)||Mid 2000s ?|
Galo Maringa, from the city of Maringa in Parana state, Brazil are sadly no more having merged with another club to form Adap Galo Maringa. Sadly the new club adopted black and white as their colours but didn't stick with the classic stripes. Galo is Portuguese for cockerel, thus the club's badge which given it's shape and the stripes remind the casual viewer more than a little of Juventus. A very good shirt and a real historical curiosity for the collection for which I must say "obrigado" to my good friend Bira from sunny Sao Paulo.
