La Hoya Lorca Home 2013





I'll be honest, I had never heard of La Hoya Lorca until they released this crazy kit. La Hoya Lorca play in the Segunda Division B - Group 4 and are based in the community of Murcia. Lorca is famous for growing broccoli which is why they based their kit design on it. I have to say it is one of the most uniquely designed shirts I own.

 This is a rather rare and cool design for a football shirt. The dolphins for me around the number 9 on the shirt make it for me. Although their shirt is quite good, their football team is not. They have never qualified for any major tournament and have only reached a highest ranking of 189 which in fairness is not very good. Anyway they often lose a lot in World Cup qualifying but let me show you a video of the Anguilla team in action in possibly one of the wettest football matches I have ever seen. Remember Poland and England getting called off for a waterlogged pitch? It had nothing on this and this match carried on. You'll soon see from the video the poor quality of football from the Anguillan's though.
