Put the date in your diary, Monday 20th July, as the Footy Boots Football Boot Awards are back.

After the amazing success of last year’s competition, the original and best football boot industry awards will be up and running in just over a week and we’re expecting a flood of votes as you decide on which football boots are worthy of the title of Footy Boots Awards Winners.

Always looking to keep things fresh and exciting, we’ve decided to make some changes to the categories so this year’s list looks like this:

Earlier this year Umbro Ireland have reached an agreement with Action Breast Cancer Ireland along with Shamrock Rovers FC and Bohemians FC regarding Pink kits for this 2009 season.

You may remember that there were 500 jerseys each for both clubs which was raising 10,000 Euro for Action Breast Cancer Ireland.

Both kits went on sale on last Friday, and have been flying off the shelves with Shamrock Rovers having less than 50 jerseys left now. Both clubs web stores are selling the kits along with the cancer.ie website.

A fitting way to celebrate their coming back to serie A!

Coventry City will be wearing their limited edition chocolate brown strip when they take on Watford for the final home game of the 2008/09 season at the Ricoh Arena this Saturday.

At the beginning of the season, City decided to issue an up-to-date version of the iconic strip from the 1970s as part of its 125th anniversary celebrations.

Just 1,125 were made and they quickly sold out and now the players will get to sample the strip for one match - and the club is asking supporters to wear brown for the occasion too.

Coventry City commercial director Nathan Kosky said: "The brown strip proved very popular among supporters when we issued a limited edition replica shirt earlier in the season.

"The original strip - famously worn by the likes of Ian Wallace - split opinion right down the middle. Some loved it, some loathed it but it certainly grabbed attention.

"Although there are no promotion or relegation issues to be resolved on Saturday it is still a very big game for the club.

"We want to finish the season on a high to give everyone something to look forward to for in the next campaign.

"Hopefully, by creating a fun, party atmosphere as is often the case on the last game of the season, and with everyone wearing some brown with their sky blue that will help to make it a special day."

The purple kit has been given the seal of approval by City manager, Martin Foyle, who said, “It’s a great kit and really unique. We wanted something entirely different for the Final, a real one off. Hopefully we will see some purple shirts scattered around Wembley on 9th May.”
