The 1999 Play Off Final at Wembley, Manchester City against Gillingham both fighting for promotion to the First Division! All eyes on the 20 year old City goalkeeper, Weaver, in the deciding penalty shoot out. Keeping out Butters shot secured City promotion and the iconic Weaver run around the pitch that followed saw him finally caught by his euphoric team mates.
Over 20 years later and it’s remembered by blues as the historic turning point for MCFCs fight back to the top. Few can forget Weavers bright orange top with dark navy sleeve stripes as he gestures to his team mates to catch him if they can as he celebrates.
Our Subs Bench 6 colour Weaver Bobble brings that day back to life again, incorporating all the vibrant colours associated with Weavers winning kit. A truly remarkable and unforgettable day for City fans.
