Pies has teamed up with the fine gents over at Savile Rogue to give you the chance to win one of the world’s finest cashmere football scarves in the club colours of your choice.
Savile Rogue scarves give a nod to football terraces of yesteryear, shunning in-your-face logos and cheap nylon in favour of a traditional bar design and the comfort, quality and warmth of top grade wool.
Let me tell you from personal experience, these things are absolutely beautiful. So beautiful, in fact, that you’ll make Roberto Mancini look like a piss-soaked hobo. It’s the sort of scarf you would be happy to wear even when you’re not at the match. They’d also make an excellent Christmas gift for the chilly-necked football fan in your life – nudge nudge, wink wink.
To be in with a chance of getting your paws on one of these bobby dazzlers in the colours of your choosing, you’ll have to answer this simple question…
Q: Which English club inspired Juventus to ditch their pink kit in 1903 and begin wearing their now famous black and white stripes?
A: Newcastle United
B: Notts County
C: Darlington FC
Send your answers (just an ‘A’, ‘B’ or ‘C’ will do) to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Savile Rogue Comp’ in the subject field, and we’ll pick a winner at random by the end of the week.
Terms & conditions: The closing date is midnight (GMT) on Sunday 4th December, 2011. Only one entry per person. The competition is open to Pies readers in the UK only. Good luck people!
