Shinnik Yaroslavl are one of the Russian Premier League's lesser known clubs. This is another shirt sent to me by my "Russian contact", Anton (www.soccer-collection.narod.ru) who you can see at the top left of the screen with his daughter Sofia and his wife Jenya. Apparently Shinnik's nickname translates into English as "Tyre". I like the effect Umbro have used on the shirt to "fade" the black stripes which makes it a little different to any other blue/black striped shirt. My friend from Moscow, Oleg assures me that Shinnik have a somewhat unwanted reputation as one of the most corrupt clubs in Russia!
