Owls fans are encouraged to don their Wednesday shirts this Friday and take part in a national charity campaign, ‘Football Shirt Friday’.

The campaign is in aid of the Bobby Moore Fund which was set up in memory of the 1966 World Cup winning captain and is calling on all football supporters to wear their team colours on Friday to support the organisation for Cancer Research UK.

Football Shirt Friday, Friday 22 April, is taking place the day before what would have been Bobby’s birthday, to raise awareness and funds for bowel cancer - the disease that took his life in 1993 when he was aged just 51.

The charity day comes from one of the most famous pictures of Bobby when he swapped football shirts with Pelé.

Owls fans are encouraged to swap their work clothes to a blue and white shirt to raise money for the charity and help fund more research into Bowel Cancer and help save more lives.

Visit to find out more and to donate.

Share your football shirt pictures on Twitter and Facebook and tag @BobbyMooreFund and #FootballShirtFriday!
