TEAM St Mirren SEASON(S) 1987

This is an interesting shirt for a couple of reasons. Firstly it is A commemorative shirt brought out in the run up to the 1987 Scottish Cup final which St Mirren won 1-0 against Dundee United and secondly it is a straight copy of the 1986/87 league season shirt which was made by Adidas but this cup final shirt was made by Matchwinner. It's not unusual for a club to wear the new shirt for the next year in an end of season cup final but I can't think of another occasion where they wore the same shirt made by a different manufacturer. Looking at it now I can still see Brian Hamilton's dink through to Ian Ferguson as Fergie accelerated away from John Holt and buried the ball in extra time after a frankly dreadful match.
