Shenton Testimonial Shirt Unveiled

Posted: Monday 13th January 2020 - 6:00 PM


The jersey, designed and produced by Fiitstyle, will be worn this Sunday when Castleford Tigers take on Toronto Wolfpack at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle, during Shenton’s testimonial match.

Shenton was instrumental in the design process, wanting to express the colour pallet of his amateur club where his rugby league journey began, Smawthorne Panthers, and of course the classic black and amber of Castleford Tigers, the club where Shenton has played over 300 games and scored over 100 tries.

Replicas of Michael’s testimonial shirt will not available for purchase, a decision made with the Tigers already having three fantastic shirts available in 2020 and Michael not wanting to introduce a fourth option, however unique match worn authentic shirts will be available through various auctions and prize draws throughout the coming year at Shenton’s testimonial events.

The first match worn shirt up for grabs will be the one taken straight off Jesse Sene-Lefao’s back. Prize draw tickets to win JSL’s shirt, priced at just £2.00, will be available to purchase from the Tigers Den club shop in Carlton Lanes, and from the Tigers Sports Superstore in Xscape from Wednesday 15th January until Saturday 18th January. Tickets will also be available pre-match on Sunday from representatives of Castleford Tigers Supporters Club who will be located around the stadium concourse on match day, with one winner being drawn and announced at half time. Shenton will make a donation of funds from this prize draw to Castleford Tigers Supporters Club, to help them to continue to support Castleford Tigers in 2020.

A second match worn jersey will also become available next week via auction with all fund being donated to the Rob Burrow fund.

The Executive Match Sponsors for Sunday’s match will be Easy Property, who will be Michael’s special guests in the fully booked Signs and Designs Restaurant, hosted by Jon Wells.
