Fulham FC launched its new home shirt at the Fulham Road Club shop this morning and immediately sold out of sizes Large through to XXL.

Fulham's Merchandise Director Kirsty Ginman said: "The response from our supporters has been simply amazing.

"I don't have the exact numbers to hand but we were surprised at the sheer volume of shirts flying out of the door."

Supporters hoping to lay their hands on one of the new shirts in time for Wednesday however won't be disappointed. Ginman added:

"We'll have another delivery in time for Wednesday's game against Sunderland so fans will still have the chance pick one up on the way to the game".
