Football League okay Robson shirts

Fri, 18 Sep 23:49:37 2009

Newcastle and Ipswich have been given special dispensation to wear shirts commemorating the life of Sir Bobby Robson when they meet next weekend.

The Football League has given the two clubs, who were both managed by the late Sir Bobby during his distinguished career, permission to wear the kits for the game at Portman Road.

After the game, the shirts will be auctioned to raise money for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, the charity founded in his name to help fund cancer research.

The former England boss died in July after losing his battle with the disease.
