Last Updated: 22/02/19 12:33pm
Stoke will pay tribute to the late Gordon Banks with their goalkeeper on Saturday wearing a special commissioned shirt to celebrate the club's League Cup success in 1972.
Stoke announced that their goalkeeper, likely to be Jack Butland, will wear the recreated green jersey with no name, no sponsor and no badge to replicate what Banks wore when Stoke won their only major trophy.
The club say it's a lasting tribute to one of the key figures in the club's greatest achievement.
It's Stoke's first home game since the club legend passed away on February 12.
Banks made 73 appearances for England and started every game of the country's World Cup victory in 1966.
He started his career at Chesterfield before making just under 300 appearances for Leicester City and then moved to Stoke in 1967, where he made 194 appearances in six years at the club.
A special Banks official matchday magazine with 84 pages will also be available to supporters.
