Notes - Extremely rare player shirt believed to have been issued to a #15 for the 1988 Under-21 European Championship Semi-Final against Scotland. The young Lions had fended off Yugoslavia and Turkey to qualify for the finals and faced a Scotland side that beaten Ireland and Belgium to book their place in the last 8. Martin Keown, Nigel Clough, Des Walker and Paul Gascoigne featured as England ran out 1-0 winners in both legs against their rivals. Waford legend Gary Porter bagged a late winner at Pittodrie in the 1st leg before David White scored late on in the 2nd at The City Ground as Dave Sexton's side set up a Semi-Final with eventual winners France. The identity of #15 for the matches is unknown but he is believed to have been an unused substitute for either of the fixtures.
