Andre Gray is currently the leading goalscorer in the Championship.
If you don’t give a f- about football, you may be thinking, “yeah, so what, Paul, who gives two f-s?” Well, the driving force of Trickett, Iain, is a Burnley fan so, due to the fact that Gray is leading his club back to the top flight and the fact that he is also cooler than a polar bear’s toe nail with a scar worthy of any Bond villain/serious roadman (Gray I mean, not Iain who has the face of an angel), he has had the latest of Trickett’s multi-coloured socks named after him.
They are pictured below in full yellow, claret and blue glory. If you aren’t a fan of the mighty Clarets or footballers who have survived getting stabbed in the face to go on and work their way all the way up the footballing ladder, from the very bottom (hopefully) right to the top, there are a few other options.
Firstly, you could forget the BFC association and enjoy them as a subtle nod to your favourite boiled sweets; rhubarb and custard. Kind of.
Far less tenuous is the couple of other socks that are currently on offer. The Classic Socks are a sensible option (imagine!) which are the comfiest looking socks you will have ever seen.
And last but not least are the Tendulkar socks, an homage to The Little Master himself, Sachin Tendulkar. The man who, when he batted, brought a nation of over a billion people to a standstill. The man who, he was so good at hitting corky balls for cricket runs, might end up being the President of India. The man who, despite all of this, still always got out to a lad from Burnley, called James.
And, with that lovely bit of anaphora, I conclude this post about socks.
Get yours here.
P.S. Before you go, I should just mention that these socks don’t usually hang around and they will be getting even more scarce as Trickett head into a slightly different direction in 2016. Make sure you don’t miss out.
