Description

The vintage Flamingoes 1871 rugby shirt is made with a heavyweight slub cotton which gives the shirt a hard wearing yet soft and comfortable retro style finish.

This vintage ‘old school’ shirt combines heritage colour dyes with a distressed wash to produce a nicely worn-in look and feel.

The number 15 is sewn on to the back of the shirt.

This classic Flamingoes 1871 rugby shirt is inspired by the founding members of the RFU.

All our vintage rugby shirts come packaged in a stylish Black&Blue1871 cotton drawstring bag.

FLAMINGOES F.C.

FOUNDER MEMBER OF THE RUGBY FOOTBALL UNION

Flamingoes were founded in 1865 with about 95 members fielding for XXs.

They played at Battersea Park, 5 minutes walk from York Road Station and the Steamboat pier.

The Flamingoes changed at ‘The Clockhouse’ in Battersea Park Road.

Flamingos were, in their time, very much a first-class club with a fine fixture list – which included Blackheath, Harlequins and Richmond. When the Flamingoes disbanded in 1877, many of their players joined the Harlequin Football Club.
