There’s two types of football fans in this world.
One thinks that after the age of 13 it’s unacceptable to wear a replica shirt.
The other has no qualms with wearing their club’s colours, no matter the age or the growing belly.
But one Bristol City fan got an unwelcome surprise after ordering the new purple and lime shirt.
Robins supporter Matthew Gillett took to Twitter after discovering an Oxford United label inside his kit.
However it appears that it’s an isolated incident. You never know Matthew, that shirt might be worth quite a bit in a few years time.
Andrew Billingham, Bristol Sport chief executive, told the Bristol City official website: “We are investigating the matter and it appears to be an isolated incident.
“We use a network of factories who produce for other clubs and major brands.
“Since the issue was highlighted we have checked all remaining stock and I am pleased to say no further issues have been identified.
“I have requested an urgent review of all manufacturing processes from our supplier to ensure this cannot happen again.”
They also apologised to Gillett on Twitter.
At least Oxford United and Bristol City aren’t major rivals.
Can you imagine if a Man City and Man United kit got mixed up?
They’d be used as toilet paper quicker than you could say Andrei Kanchelskis.
