TEAM Gretna SEASON(S) 2008

This shirt is a huge monument to a club overreaching and paying the price. If ever there was an example of being careful what you wish for then this is it. Gretna were taken from utter obscurity to the Scottish Premier League, a cup final and European football by wealthy backer Brooks Mileson. By the time they got to the SPL, the money, and the unfortunate Mr Mileson's health, was running out and the clubs final season was a morass of missed payments, bad results and ultimately financial liquidation. The club went defunct and spawned an amateur team back in the lower reaches of regional borders football. The shirt itself is the same as the 2007 shirt with a new sponsor on the front and losing the rear sponsor.
