Links With The Past: Iconic Peter Shilton Mementos
Shilton played 348 games for Leicester City between 1966 and 1974, winning 20 caps for England. As well as also playing top flight football for Stoke City, Nottingham Forest and Derby County, he also played 242 games for Southampton between 1982 and 1987, winning a further 49 caps on the way to his record total of 125 England appearances.
In was during his spell at Southampton that Peter wore this England shirt, which is on loan to our Club’s collection. This Umbro goalkeeper shirt design was used by England in 21 games between 1984 and 1986. Peter played in 18 and a half of these games.
The shirt has been signed under the crest by Peter. It has a black no.1 on the reverse, with a yellow border, outlined in black. It was worn with black shorts with yellow seams and black socks with two yellow hoops.
The Club has several other items of memorabilia associated with Peter’s time at Filbert Street, including a couple more shirts. This 331/3rpm mono vinyl record was released in 1973. It is a ‘Sports-talk’ recording featuring interviews with Leicester City stars Shilton and Jon Sammels, one interview on each side of the record. Both players have signed the reverse side of the record sleeve.
The 96-piece Peter Shilton jigsaw dates from the 1971/72 season, taken at the time manager Jimmy Bloomfield joined the Club. Peter’s Leicester City team-mates at the time included Steve Whitworth, David Nish, John Sjoberg, Graham Cross, Ally Brown and Lenny Glover.
They were soon to be joined by Jon Sammels, Alan Birchenall and Keith Weller. All three of these items have been loaned to the Club by Jill Bocock.
