Shearer goes home for pounds 15m

In Newcastle shops yesterday they ran out of letters to put "Shearer" on the back of black and white shirts. In Blackburn, there was a rush to have the departing idol's name removed from Rovers strips. All the fuss might have been saved if Alan Shearer had not been handed a green jersey when he reported to his local club for a trial 14 years ago.

Jack Walker, the man whose millions brought Alan Shearer to Blackburn Rovers, yesterday strongly denied that the club's prime asset was on his way to Manchester United.

Letter: White-out

Sir: Manchester United should not opt for an all-white shirt (report, 16 April). Remember Spurs in all that snow at Nottingham Forest; not for the first time they were practically invisible.
