Mark scores a first with new Northern Ireland team jersey

By Staff Reporter

A Northern Ireland super-fan has become the proud holder of the very first jersey from the team's new kit.

The latest strip goes on sale today. But yesterday kidney patient Mark Dobson received a shirt, 24 hours ahead of its release, from generous staff at the Irish Football Association.

Mark (24) is the son of former UUP MLA Jo-Anne Dobson and writes a weekly column in the Belfast Telegraph about what it's like being on home dialysis.

In October, Mark was named the Irish FA's fan of the month.
