To mark Rochdale AFC's first ever trip to Wemley the club have commissioned a small quantity of commemorative home shirts.

Bearing the same inscription as those worn by the players on the big day, the club shop is expecting delivery on Friday in time for Monday's visit to the home of football.

Over the past week, the entire stock of shirts has been snapped up by fans, who flocked to the club shop – the only outlet in Rochdale which sells them – to make sure they had them in time for Monday’s match at Wembley.

Club chiefs haven’t put a limit on their latest order and have asked the manufactures simply to provide as many as they can make.

The remaining shirts which went on sale on Friday morning were expected to sell out immediately.

Brighton & Hove Albion Special Errea Skint Shirts

After nine years of being proud to be 'Skint', Albion will have a new shirt sponsor from next season - but not before the club pays tribute to its longest-ever shirt sponsor with a special commemorative shirt

After nine years of being proud to be 'Skint', Albion will have a new shirt sponsor from next season - but not before the club pays tribute to its longest-ever shirt sponsor with a special commemorative shirt which will be worn by the team in the final fixture of the season against Swansea City this weekend.

Chairman Dick Knight has commissioned the special one-off design featuring the three different Skint logos which have adorned Albion shirts over the years, to mark the end of the deal with the Brighton-based record company in style. Skint will retain their links with the club and it is planned that a limited number of the special shirts will be available for sale to Albion fans, personally signed by DJ Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim.

Knight said, "The Skint name has been on the Albion shirt for longer than any other sponsorship in the Football League, and has become an iconic symbol of the club. The message 'Team Mates 1999-2008' on the commemorative shirt says just how we feel about what great sponsors they have been.

Rochdale fans getting shirty over Centenary kit ditch

Rochdale FC 07/08 centenary kit by Nike

A late decision by the Rochdale Footlall club on Friday afternoon has seen the club backtrack on their previous decision to finish the 2007-8 season with next year's kit following a large number of complaints by supporters.

The original decision featured in the Grimsby programme where it was announced that Rochdale be playing the final game of the season in next year's kit which would be unveiled on that day, with the kit, which may or may not be blue and black stripes, on sale after the game. It provoked great controversy straight away, but the past twenty four hours saw reports that the club were prepared to press ahead with their plans in the face of supporters' opinion. However, that has sent their messageboard into meltdown as a very large number of Dale supporters expressed their concern at the centenary kit being ditched in this way. But the club has seen sense finally, and they will continue with the popular 07/08 black and white kit until the end of the season. The new kit will now be unveiled on June 1st.
