Re: What year is this classic shirt from?

I have that shirt and it has a 100% win record at Wembley. It was there in 94 and again in 09. In fact in 09 it was at The Turf and Madjeski as well as Wembley. 94 home v Plymouth was white shirt and club tie as I was working and missed the away leg as I was playing cricket.
