Liverpool star David Fairclough's shirt sells for £10,000

A shirt worn by a footballer who scored the winning goal in one of Liverpool FC's most epic European Cup ties has sold for £10,000 at auction.

The number 12 shirt was worn by David Fairclough in his team's victory over French side St Etienne 40 years ago, on their way to a European Cup triumph.

Fairclough earned the nickname supersub for his knack of scoring when he came off the bench.

The shirt, which was kept in a bread box, was listed to reach up to £6,000.

Fairclough, 60, said he would give the money raised from the sale at London-based Graham Budd Auctions to his children.

In March 1977, Liverpool were six minutes away from an exit in the second leg of the quarter-final tie at a packed Anfield when the Liverpool-born striker changed the match.

Fairclough controlled a long pass from Ray Kennedy on his chest, shrugged off a heavy challenge and with two touches slotted the ball home from just inside the penalty area to give his side the 3-1 win they needed for an aggregate victory.

It sent fans wild and prompted a TV commentator to scream: "Supersub strikes again!"
