Sheffield Utd 'Hodgy' Giant Tribute Shirt

25 January 2016

To pay tribute to their former goalkeeping legend Alan 'Hodgy' Hodgkinson, who sadly passed away last December aged 79, Sheffield United FC commissioned a giant green replica goalkeeper shirt printed with 'Hodgy 1'.

The giant shirt measuring 8.5 x 10 metres was on display at Bramall Lane for the match against Coventry on 13th December, when fans were also encouraged to wear green in memory of their much respected goalkeeper who always played for his club in a good, old fashioned green 'keeper shirt.

Alan Hodgkinson was the youngest goalkeeper capped by England.
