Thought people here might be interested (or not) - during lockdown boredom I’ve created a Twitter account to share my own collection of match-worn shirts, from a 1986 Challenge Cup Final shirt to a match-worn Regal Trophy Final shirt.
I’ll try to share on here too, but my Twitter handle is @casrugbyshirts:
https://twitter.com/casrugbyshirts
I’m sharing in shirt-number order over the next few weeks - currently up to number 4.

Unfortunately not, if it’s the one I’m thinking of! The oldest shirt I have is the 1985 white away shirt (number 1 above).

Number 5s:
On the day a shortened Super League re-starts, here is the Castleford home shirt from the last short season.
The 20-game Centenary Championship ran from August 1995 to January 1996 (with no Challenge Cup) to allow for a move to summer rugby and the start of Super League.

Number 9:

The 1993-1995 home shirt by Ellgren went down in history as the one worn in the 1994 Regal Trophy Final. Led by Lee Crooks, the 33-2 annihilation of Wigan was one of the best Cas performances ever. This shirt was worn in the game by Richard ‘Jack’ Russell.

Also featuring a winner’s medal!

The 1988-1989 shirt was only very slightly different to the 85-87 design, with white added between the black stripes. Here is the number 10 from that season, worn by Kevin Ward and Dean Sampson (who has also signed the shirt).

Number 12:

Nothing says ‘rugby league shirt’ more than a chevron. It’s a design you don’t see often in other sports, but they are everywhere in RL! Here is the Cas chevron design from 2012, worn by
Jonathan Walker.
