To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Canaries' 1958-59 cup run success, Norwich have commissioned 959 special limited edition replica shirts.

Speaking at the launch of the shirt in The Mall Canary Store, current City midfielder Sammy Clingan said he was proud to wear the shirt which saw his Norwich predecessors achieve their success.

"I think it's good for the Club and the fans to celebrate the 50 year anniversary of the cup run," Sammy commented.  

"I think they did really well and they got all the way to the semi final which is a great achievement - looking to nowadays it would be great if we could emulate something like that.

On the design of the replica shirt, Clingan added: "It's a nice shirt, it feels comfortable on and there doesn't feel much of a difference to other shirts. It's good for the Club to celebrate the anniversary of the great cup run that the guys had. I've seen some of the old shirts when I was at Wolves and they used to celebrate things like this as well, and there is a big difference from the shirts from those days to now."

Nice top! It looks like the Wales away top with Kappa last year.

Lets hope they don\'t get drawn away to Watford in the Third round and go out before they even get to wear this shirt!

LOL!? are they being serious ?? releasing a shirt to commemorate reaching the FA Cup Semi-Final 50 years ago lmao ? i could entirely understand it if Norwich had actually won the Cup, but reaching the Semi-Final isn\'t a success for a Division 1 / Prem Club, not even Non League or Conference sides would do something like this even if they reached the Final!.<br /><br />Like someone below said, pretty sad celebrating mediocrity...
