Read what some of our customers old and new, plus fellow collectors say about and our products.

"I first contacted Simon a few years ago, and he has been invaluable to me with his football shirt knowledge ever since. There are not many people who take the time to explain things to you, especially good news when you have just started collecting football shirts and knowledge is limited. Since first talking to Simon (When he helped me identify a nonauthentic shirt I had bought elsewhere), I can now happily say that 90% of my collection has been bought from Footballmatchshirts. They do say that "The only way you know a shirt is authentic is to be given it by the player himself" The second best way is buy a shirt from Simon "Shakey"!  Steve collector from North Somerset UK

"As an American Gooner ... I have been lucky enough to have discovered Shakey and YH&L. So I might be a long way from Ash Grove, but I'm there in spirit thanks to the fantastic shirts he always has for me. Shakey is THE dealer when it comes to authentic Arsenal match-worn shirts. If he doesn't have what I'm looking for he has the contacts to find it. It's always a pleasure dealing with Shakey who knows his stuff, and is a good person on top of that. So whenever I have that unusual request (a Flamini away white long-sleeve Champions League shirt!) I turn to Shakey. Thank you for your fantastic service." Leigh B Arsenal shirt collector from United States of America
