Norwich City confirmed that the Canaries will again wear the special kit to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Club's 1958-59 Cup run in their FA Cup third round replay against Charlton Athletic at Carrow Road on Tuesday, January 13 (7.45pm).

Norwich wore the retro kit on Saturday against Charlton in the FA Cup third round match at The Valley, which ended in a 1-1 draw thanks to Arturo Lupoli's 70th minute equaliser.

Player-worn shirts from the third round replay will then be auctioned on the Club's official website from Thursday, January 15, with a share of the proceeds going to the Norwich City Historical Trust.

The special shirts to be worn follow the original 1958-59 shirt design and thanks to Aviva, there will be no sponsor logo. They also feature a green v-neck and sleeve trim and distinctive period badge design. The team will also be sporting black shorts and yellow socks, as the 58-59 team wore.

Back in October, current player Sammy Clingan joined Terry Allcock, who played in the historic cup run to unveil the special shirt and 959 of these have been produced for fans to purchase from the Canary Stores.

Hull City must find a 3rd kit for their FA Cup replay at newcastle United as both their present kits clash with the Newcastle's black and white home kit.

In September 2008, Hull City followed Premier League procedures fully in the build up to the game against Newcastle in the EPL by registering their second choice strip in advance of this fixture.

It was only when the team arrived at the ground that the match referee, as is his right, decided that in his opinion the flint coloured away kit was in fact too similar to Newcastle United's home kit.

With Newcastle United's co-operation, they were able to wear their second choice white shorts and white socks to enable the match officials to distinguish between the two teams.

"We have got a massive problem - we don't have a third-choice strip," admitted manager Phil Brown.

"We can't wear our home kit and we can't wear our away. Hopefully Umbro can come up with something."

Coventry City fans have been preparing to snap up the limited edition chocolate brown shirts that the team will wear on the final home match of the season against Watford at the Ricoh Arena.

The shirt will no doubt be a collector's item, and will go on pre-order on Sunday 28th December, on the day of the Sheffield Wednesday match, from the Britannia Tyres club shop at a cost of £38.99.

As there will only be 1,125 replica shirts made, the club wishes to make fans aware that the shirt will only be produced in adult sizes.

The club is sorry for any disappointment this may cause some of our younger fans, but the costs involved for Puma to produce even smaller numbers throughout a wider range of sizes would have meant the retail price of the shirt exceeding £40. Sizes will range from small adult to XXL, with a limited stock in each size.

The original brown kit was worn in 1978, and the retro version is a big seller in the club shop at the Ricoh Arena so now current kit manufacturers Puma are producing a modern version for City to wear against the Hornets on Friday, April 24 2009.

Flamengo fans have reacted furiously on the news that Ronaldo will be playing for rival Corinthians. They burned shirts with Ronaldo's face and quickly removed Ronaldo bumper stickers from their cars.

Ronaldo worked on his recovery at Flamengo in the last few months, but agreed a one-year contract with the club from Sao Paulo on Tuesday. 

In Sao Paulo the news of Ronaldo coming to Corinthians resulted in a real rush to the fanshop where fans tried to get their hands on the Corinthians Ronaldo number 9 shirt.

Cambridge United announced the launch of their new all light blue change kit, which will be worn for the first time at the Torquay United game on 6th December 2008.

Club Secretary Wayne Purser explained the choice: "The current white kit caused us problems on several occasions last season when we had to wear the yellow 'Sweden lookalike' kit instead, and this season at Forest Green the referee was touch and go about us wearing either kit, eventually letting us wear the black and amber shirt with white shorts and socks."

Millwall's new third kit is flying off the shelves in the Millwall Club Shop. The kit has a retro design and is proving a popular buy with supporters.

The orange kit is sponsored by Bukta teamwear. The club's main sponsor CYC only agreed to sponsor the home and away kits and this gave Bukta the possibility to put its name on the 3rd kit.

Millwall Kit Manager Adrian Wisson said : "It's not a traditional colour - but having a third kit gives you a chance to choose something a bit off beat."

"Chelsea wore a bright kit a few seasons ago and we thought it could benefit us to go down a similar route."

Hearts midfielder Michael Stewart launched the Clydesdale Bank Premier League's Poppy Day Fixtures, as the top flight in Scotland marks Remembrance Weekend as one for the first time.

To symbolise the importance of the event, Hearts embroidered not only a Poppy on the player's shirts, but the name of seven players who gave their lives for the name of the country's freedom.

Every club will join Hearts in wearing a poppy, the world-recognised symbol of remembrance, to show their support for the 2008 Scottish Poppy Appeal. The poppy appeal organisers wrote to the 12 clubs asking them to wear the one-off kit - and all agreed.
