CK: Who's your team?

ZD: Norwich City

CK: For those reading about you for the first time, can you tell them a bit about yourself.

ZD: I’m a football fan turned football shirt fanatic! I love to be creative in everything I do and create engaging content for people to get involved with. Photography is a huge passion of mine and I also like to combine this love with my love of football shirts.

CK: Would you say you have a fascination with kit history?

ZD: I do enjoy learning about kit history, but don’t go out of my way to research it. It is interesting but my brain doesn’t hold that much information because it’s packed with football history!

CK: Do you have a specific era that you like most when it comes to kits?

ZD: The 90s era was definitely the best for football shirts but the 2020s will definitely rival it.

CK: What's your favourite kit in your personal collection?

ZD: My favourite shirt in my collection is a match worn Max Aarons shirt. It’s more about the story attached than the shirt itself. I found a shirt online and it turned out that Max had given it to his granddad before he died. I realised this when it was delivered and tweeted to see if Max wanted the shirt back. He messaged me straight away and got me tickets to two upcoming games and we did a shirt swap. What a guy! 

CK: If you had to pick your top 3 football shirts of all time, what would they be?

ZD: The full Norwich 92-94 set! It can’t be beaten

CK: If you could take one football shirt with you to a desert island, what would it be?

ZD: I would take the Barcelona 22/23 away shirt because it doesn’t just look good, but it feels amazing too. And I wouldn’t want to lose one of my rarer shirts!

CK: If people want to check out more of your work, where can people find it?
