If you do not wish to wait for the other items, please make separate orders for the Legend shirt and your other purchases. We cannot guarantee availability of sizes for exchanges as only those shirts ordered will be produced.
The predominantly white shirt will complement the club’s home and away shirts for the new campaign but most importantly will raise funds and awareness for the MND Association.
