WATCH: Dublin girl surprised as Aguero wears her Man City kit design


Share this article


Dubliner Lucy-Beth received the surprise of a lifetime when she won a 'Design a kit for Manchester City' competition.

Sponsored by City's kit supplier, Puma, the competition received over 1,000 entries from around the globe.

The entries were whittled down to a final four, before 9-year old Lucy-Beth's sky-blue, white and pink number emerged victorious.

To celebrate, Puma made Lucy-Beth's design a reality with her name on the back of the jersey.

Perhaps most special of all, her favourite City player Sergio Aguero revealed the winning design and had a special message for the Dubliner.

Lucy-Beth has also received a signed jersey from Aguero, and a framed print of her winning entry.

Hailing from a family of City fans, she's already made a pair of pilgrimages to the Etihad.

"I decided to enter because I love drawing and colouring, and since it was Man City, I thought it was perfect for me," she said.

"I chose this design because they already have stripes and I just thought I’d rather have a pop of colour, so I did the stripes on the inside.

"I had to keep the blue because Man City is blue, so I added the pink for a pop of colour.

“I am so excited to win this competition and I still can’t believe Sergio Aguero made a video just for me."

“PUMA did a great job. I can’t believe my design became a real jersey – it’s a thumbs up from me!”
