Fletcher Sports helped a Danish football shirt enthusiast source the latest addition to his collection.
Frederik Haagerup contacted us after he fell in love with the crest on the Guernsey Island team shirt while doing his research on smaller countries and British territories.
'I like the idea of a national symbol and admired the fact that Guernsey has its own national team. I love the whole idea of someone being proud of being from Guernsey or Gibraltar or Jersey,' he said.
'Not only is [the Guernsey shirt] a quite special national team shirt because of the size of the island, but the Guernsey FA crest is magnificent!'
Frederik started collecting national jerseys five years ago, after getting a Ghana shirt during the 2014 FIFA World Cup. He then went to Africa and was keen to collect national shirts as souvenirs. But he struggled whilst he was there, and only managed to start building up his collection when he returned to Denmark.
'I like to send messages to the different countries' FAs and source them that way, rather than going for the standard European ones like England, Spain, Italy. That's too easy!'
In pursuit of the Guernsey shirt, Frederik (who has around 30 national team jerseys in his collection) sent a message to the Fletcher Sports Facebook page asking for help, and we were only too happy to oblige.
'I was very grateful to Fletcher Sports for getting back to me and putting me in touch with the Guernsey FA, which did a great job in sending me the special anniversary shirt. The first one got lost in the post, but they kindly sent another and I was thrilled when it arrived.'
