Who we are and what we do

Your Heroes & Legends is a Limited Company family business. As keen collectors of football memorabilia, for many years, especially match worn/issued player football shirts, we decided to turn our hobby into our livelyhood, originally starting out in the retail business in 2002 when we opened a small retail outlet in Shrewsbury, United Kingdom. Here we specialised in selling football replica and retro shirts and other football memorabilia. We outgrew this retail outlet and so went from a small shop window in Shropshire, to the window of the world wide web in 2005.

Having for a number of years, supplied many of the major match shirt dealers and having a good level of both knowledge of players shirts and importantly, football contacts who could obtain shirts -our proprietor/managing director had work in professional football for 15 years with a number of Football League clubs- http://www.footballmatchshirts.co.uk/ was born in early 2006. Having evolved our business, we moved away from other areas of football/sports memorabilia, and concentrated on specialising in our area of knowledge and making game used/match worn players football/soccer shirts the core product of our web site.

Over recent years we have earned a reputation for honesty and integrity, and shown we are a company that can be trusted, earning respect amongst our peers. See what others say about us in our testimonials section - www.footballmatchshirts.co.uk/testimonials.htm We now work closely with various UK Auction Houses and auctioneers, including Graham Budd in association with Sothebys, helping to authenticate match shirts and have also developed relationships with many former players and football staff, assisting them in cataloging and obtaining a valuation of their own collections. Through these relationships and now knowing many of the foremost collectors in the UK, we can arrange a private sale or get items placed for sale at auction.     

Rest assured, when it comes to authentic and genuine football match worn memorabilia, we believe you have come to the right place. Take a good look around the web site to see our full range of shirts from the Premierships top players, yes their actual match shirts, in some cases straight off the players back! We specialise in most things FA Premier League from Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool & Manchester United including shirts from the UEFA Champions League, to Everton, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, West Ham United, the FA Cup and the Football League, infact everything and anything match worn or game used. 

So browse at your will and if you have any questions please contact us. But please note, unfortunately we do not provide any detailed information on how to identify genuine match worn shirts to first time or general enquiries, as this information can and is used by counterfeiters to improve their fake manufactured shirts, many of which litter various auction web sites. But what we will do, is our utmost to helpfully assist you, the customer, with as much information as we can, to make any acquisition, whether your first or 51st as smooth as possible. As collectors ourselves we want to treat you the same way we would expect to be treated ourselves when making a purchase.

For that special gift, long term investment or totally unique item, for all budgets -as collectors ourselves we understand the costs involved!- we will continue to provide quality match worn, game used football memorabilia. From your own heroes to an international legends shirt, we will do our best to source it for you.

We don't claim to be the Premier site, the Number One!, the biggest or the best we just let the quality of our shirts speak for themselves.

Why not take alook at our own personal collection web sites, just to see how serious (or mad) we are about the wonderful hobby of shirt collecting:
