TEAM Shinnik Yaroslavl SEASON(S) 2005
HOME/AWAY Home COUNTRY Russia
MANUFACTURER Umbro

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!
