Would you like to own Chris Brunt's match-worn Northern Ireland shirt from Czech Republic win?

By Gareth Hanna

Northern Ireland sealed another historic night at Windsor Park last week when they saw off the Czech Republic 2-0 to secure a top two finish in World Cup qualifying Group C.

Chris Brunt netted the second goal, an inch-perfect curling free-kick, and you could buy this match-worn shirt, which is up for auction for a good cause.

The shirt is being sold to raise money for the Helping Hand charity, which was founded to provide equipment, fund research, education and to support the immediate needs of children and their parents at the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children.

The shirt has been signed by the Northern Ireland starting XI as well as the three used substitutes and will be on auction until October 7, when Moira woman Amanda Russell will host an evening to raise money for the charity.

On Monday evening, there was a bid registered of £550 for the shirt, but if you can top that, you can bid for Brunt's match-worn shirt right here.

The charity night will take place in Leslie Memorial Orange Hall, Broomhedge. Amanda is hosting the evening in support of the hospital where her son's life was saved after he suffered a fractured skull last year.
