MATCH WORN HERITAGE SHIRTS TO BE AUCTIONED OFF

Our match worn heritage shirts are being auctioned off on Match Worn Shirt, with a percentage of the proceeds going to our charity partners, Strathcarron Hospice.

The auction goes live at 6pm this evening and runs until 3pm on Saturday 18th May.

Falkirk FC’s 2023/24 Heritage Kit was released in October 2023 and aims to celebrate the unique heritage of the town of Falkirk, as the club heads towards their 150th anniversary in 2026.
These match worn shirts are now being auctioned to raise funds for both the club and their charity partners, Strathcarron Hospice, who provide excellent care to support those within the Falkirk area who are living with illness.

The heritage kit was worn on three occasions this season:
Falkirk 3-0 Fortmartine United – 25th of November 2023
Edinburgh City 2-2 Falkirk – 13th of January 2024
Falkirk 2-2 Kelty Hearts – 20th of April 2024
The striking yellow and navy blue design features the embattled motif from Falkirk’s coat of arms on its front. This is based on the original Livingston of Callendar crest, with the embattlement feature later added to signify the Antonine Wall which runs through the town.
The rear commemorates the life and death of one of Falkirk District’s most famous sons, Sir John de Graeme/Graham. Born in the 13th century at Dundaff Castle, John de Graeme was considered to be William Wallace’s right-hand man, fighting at Stirling Bridge and losing his life at the Battle of Falkirk in 1298.
2023 marks the 725th anniversary of the battle and the back of the strip features the lion rampant, 1298 and the Graeme coat of arms which adorns Sir John’s tomb in the graveyard of Falkirk Old Parish, the site of the original ‘speckled church’ from which Falkirk derives its name.
Wallace was said to be distraught at his friend’s death, and the top is signed off with a line from Blind Harry’s epic 15th century poem ‘The Wallace’ in which he describes the outpouring of grief from all of the local townsfolk who attended Sir John’s funeral.
Today, the name of Sir John de Graeme/Graham lives on in Falkirk in the Grahamston District, Grahamston Train Station and Graham’s Road, as well as the Graeme Hotel and Graeme High School whose badge also carries the clam shell motifs from the Graham coat of arms.
As a mark of respect our third strip remained sponsor free and a share of profits from all match-worn and replica sales was donated to charity. Dundaff Castle lies at the head of the Carron Valley so, in memory of Sir John de Graeme, Strathcarron Hospice has been chosen as the beneficiary for this season.
