Sir Bobby shirts raise thousands

Commemorative Sir Bobby Robson shirts
The shirts feature the logo of Sir Bobby's cancer foundation

Commemorative shirts in memory of Sir Bobby Robson have made thousands of pounds for his cancer charity.

The shirts, embroidered with the foundation's logo, were worn by Newcastle players during the match against Ipswich in September.

They were put up for auction on the eBay site on 22 October, and when bidding ended on 1 November, more than £30,000 had been raised.

Sir Bobby, from County Durham, died of cancer in July, aged 76.

All the shirts had been signed by the Newcastle players who wore them during the match on 26 September.

The one worn by Kevin Nolan, who scored a hat-trick, raised the most, going for almost £5,500.
