Rihanna has had a lot of one-on-one time with boyfriend A$AP Rocky over the past few weeks.

And on Saturday, the pair were spotted having dinner at posh Peasant restaurant in Manhattan’s downtown SoHo neighborhood, with the singer sporting sexy in her edgy ensemble.

Rihanna (born Robyn Rihanna Fenty), 33, put on a top-to-bottom display as she got out of their car in a $200 (£150) Martine Rose football shirt worn as a mini dress and gloves MiuMiu goalkeeper style at $670 (£500).

With a shiver in the wintry air, the Savage X Fenty founder partially covered himself in an oversized red quilted coat.

Adding to the sex appeal with a pair of black peep toe heels with a silver strap along her ankles.

She stepped up the bling factor by accessorizing with dangling diamond earrings.

To complete her overall look, Rihanna donned a black baseball cap over her raven braids and wore a slick of red lipstick.

Once out of their car, Rocky (born Rakim Athelaston Mayers), 33, led the way to the sidewalk where his sweetheart reached out and the two held hands on their way to the restaurant.

The rapper and record producer stood out decked out in a cropped gold faux fur jacket with black pants, a green t-shirt, burgundy boots and a beanie.

The sidewalk began to light up with flashes as fans noticed the celebrity couple and started snapping photos with their cameras.

The pair were longtime friends before deciding to bring the romantic element to their relationship in January 2020.

Before her dinner date with A$AP Rocky, Rihanna reportedly spent time at a music studio in Brooklyn.

It’s now been six years since she released her last studio album, Anti, in January 2016, which included the singles Work, Kiss It Better, Needed Me and Love On The Brain. Rihanna ditched her previous radio-friendly dance songs for a more soulful sound and production that she felt was “authentic and liberating”.

Fans can expect another change in her sound for the upcoming new album, which has included a lot of time-consuming experimentation.

‘You’re not going to expect what you hear. Just put that in your mind,’ the Barbados native said Billboard last September.

“I’m really experimenting. Music is like fashion. You should be able to play. I should be able to wear what I want. I treat music the same way, explained the nine-time winner of a Grammy, adding, “So I’m having fun and it’s gonna be completely different.”

So far, there is no official word on the release date of the new album.

With sales of over 250 million records worldwide, Rihanna is one of the best-selling musical artists of all time.

She has landed 14 No. 1 songs and 31 top ten singles in the US during her music career which has included nine Grammy wins.

As of 2021, Rihanna is the richest musician, with an estimated net worth of $1.7 billion, according to Forbes.

Seven most iconic football shirt sponsors – from Jagermeister to Nintendo https://rigelgroupllc.com/seven-most-iconic-football-shirt-sponsors-from-jagermeister-to-nintendo/ Fri, 24 Dec 2021 08:00:00 +0000 https://rigelgroupllc.com/seven-most-iconic-football-shirt-sponsors-from-jagermeister-to-nintendo/ Football shirts are important, and a sponsor can make or break a shirt when it comes to hall of fame status.

Football shirts are important, and a sponsor can make or break a shirt when it comes to hall of fame status.

However, on some occasions, the sponsor can be as iconic as the design itself.

Think of Ole Gunnar Solskajer knocking down the 1999 Champions League final, and the Sharp on his chest is almost as iconic as his baby smile.

Some fans see sponsors as the main indicator of modern football, while others see them as a key ingredient of a good kit.

And with that in mind, Star Daily Sport takes a look at the seven most iconic football sponsors.

Nintendo-Fiorentina



Batigol and Nintendo will always be linked

Serie A in the 1990s was brilliant.

And nothing is more typical of 1990s Serie A than Gabriel Batistuta rushing towards goal, dressed in purple, with Nintendo slapped on his stomach.

Even now, Fiorentina shirts – more so if they have Batistuta or Rui Costa on their backs – will fetch a pretty penny online.

Many football shirt collectors cite the 1998/99 Fiorentina jersey as their ‘holy grail’ alongside iconic stripes such as Germany’s 1990 World Cup shirt or Arsenal’s ‘bruised banana’ .

Who is your favorite jersey sponsor? Let us know in the “Comments” section

March – Napoli



Napoli won their last scudetto with Mars on the shirt

Naples and Mars are iconic because of one man: Diego Armando Maradona.

With the candy bar front and center of their shirt, Maradona guided Napoli to their final scudetto in 1988 and a UEFA Cup triumph in 1989.

However, the star shone and quickly faded – 90/91 marked last year that Mars were Napoli’s main sponsor as Maradona was banned.

Mars hasn’t made a comeback in the jersey sponsor game since.

Sharp – Manchester United



Sharp has been associated with United for nearly 20 years

Sharp cemented its place as the go-to home appliance brand for Manchester United fans thanks to the 1999 Champions League.

With the Red Devils 1-0 in stoppage time, Teddy Sheringham and Solskajer both found the net to hand Sir Alex Ferguson’s side their first European title and only England treble.

The couple were linked for nearly two decades, with Sharp’s sponsorship spanning from 1982 to 2000.

Their association ended when Vodafone became the main sponsor of the Red Devils.

Jagermeister – Eintracht Braunschweig



Braunschweig were the ambitious pioneers
Braunschweig were the ambitious pioneers

Although it’s disputed that Eintracht Braunschweig were the first team to have a shirt sponsor in 1972, they certainly got the ball rolling for the rest of the world.

Braunschweig, then from the Bundesliga, combined their bright yellow shirts with local sponsor Jagermeister.

The stunt netted the team DM 100,000 and paved the way for the football business that is worth millions today.

These days, Jagermeister is a well-known cliché at a student party, and much of that is due to their exhibitor in Braunschweig.

Pirelli – Inter Milano



Pirelli spent more than 25 years with Inter Milan
Pirelli spent more than 25 years with Inter Milan

Alright, hands up, we lied earlier; nothing screams 1990s Serie A than Ronaldo bombarding towards a shaky defense with Pirelli on his kit in that iconic strip on the outside.

It seems Pirelli only got into the tire business to sponsor Inter Milan.

Since 1995, the iconic elongated P, which is certainly not an F, has adorned Inter kits.

With Pirelli as title sponsor, Inter won the 2010 treble under Jose Mourinho.

Newcastle Brown Ale – Newcastle



Newcastle strikers Alan Shearer (l) and Les Ferdinand celebrate a goal during the Premiership match between Newcastle United and Manchester United at St Jame's Park on October 20, 1996 in Newcastle, England.  Newcastle won the match 5-0.
Newcastle almost won the Premier League with Newcastle Brown ale as sponsor

Newcastle United’s later years, stuck somewhere between mid-table and Mike Ashley, had fans longing for glory days.

And what image signifies the glory days more than Alan Shearer walking away in celebration, hand in the air and hair still on his head, with the Newcastle Brown Ale logo on his shirt.

Kevin Keegan’s ‘artists’ approached the Premier League crown with this iconic logo.

And even now it’s hard not to spot the sponsor in a home draw at Newcastle.

Quilmes-Boca Juniors and River Plate



Maradona has made two appearances on this list
Maradona has made two appearances on this list

Gabriel Batistuta, Claudio Caniggia and Buenos Aires-based Pilsner Quilmes are three of the names who have dared to step through the Superclasico.

And the beer is undoubtedly the most successful.

On the blue side, Boca Juniors shirts with the branding saw Maradona, Juan Riquelme and Martin Palermo donning the shirt.

While their hated rivals River Plate have Hernan Crespo, Pablo Aimar and Esteban Cambiasso.

A football fan slammed a bar in Cardiff city center for telling him to cover his Welsh jersey or leave.

Greg Caine attended the video game-themed Kongs after seeing Wales’ 5-1 win over Belarus on Saturday. He said he played the Pacman video game with friends for about two hours before being told he couldn’t stay if his shirt was visible.

The 28-year-old has claimed that he has visited Kongs on several occasions wearing a Wales rugby shirt after matches and has never encountered any problems. He believes his treatment on Saturday is an example of “prejudice” against football fans based on outdated perceptions.

“It is embarrassing that clubs and pubs in Cardiff still have this policy,” he said. “I love rugby and watch the Wales rugby team regularly, but I see the difference in the way fans are treated.”

A spokesperson for Kongs said its policy on football shirts is for the safety of customers and staff, adding: “This means that from time to time people may be denied access or asked to leave. places.”

Greg, a video journalist from Pembrokeshire, lives in Liverpool but traveled to Cardiff for the Wales World Cup qualifier which was Gareth Bale’s 100th cap.

He said: “It was probably around 10.30pm that we got to Kongs. I was with three friends who were wearing Wales shirts and two of them had bucket hats. They got in with no problem.

“As I got to the door the bouncer said, ‘Oh, you’ve got a football top. The two bouncers were discussing it among themselves. I thought to myself, “What’s going on?” My friends had just entered.

“They have a sign on the door saying ‘no football tops, no fancy dress’. I told them,’ That’s a stupid rule, I’ve been here in a rugby top and haven’t had no problem. “They were like, ‘Put on your coat and you can come in.'”

Greg said it was “hot” inside, so he took off his coat after five minutes. For the next two hours, he had “no problem”. About 15 to 20 customers had Welsh shirts on display, he says.



Kongs, rue Sainte-Marie

“I was having a very normal time there,” he added. “I was really playing Pacman with my friends, I was having a really good time, not saying anything. There weren’t any Belarusians there. I haven’t seen a single Belarusian all day, even there. outside the stadium.

“About two hours went by and I was at the bar as a few people I vaguely knew came in and was chatting with them. It was a little embarrassing because one of the bouncers came over and said: “Put on your coat or you have to go.

“I think he was a different bouncer than before. I said, ‘Well, I’ve been here ages and haven’t caused any problems. There are loads of people with football tops here and I’m not going to start. ‘

“He said, ‘Yeah buddy, it’s just my boss, it’s politics. To be fair, I don’t really understand but maybe my boss doesn’t like football.’ It was a ridiculous situation. I was like, ‘Are you kidding me?’ “

For Welsh football news delivered to your inbox,sign up for our newsletter here.

Greg and his friends have decided to leave. There was a piece of paper taped to the entrance spelling out Kongs’ football tops policy, which he said he removed and handed to door staff.

“The bouncers kind of rolled their eyes,” he said. “One of them was like, ‘He’s my boss mate.’

“I thought it was really unfair. You see worse on rugby day [than Wales football match days]. People have a lot more p **** d. You will see people passed out covered in vomit at 3 p.m.

“Football fans usually check themselves out because they know the nightclubs will be stricter, or they will go to Canton because they know the downtown area just won’t tolerate it.

“I think it’s just a historical thing. I think probably 10 to 15 years ago at least there were issues with the Cardiff and Swansea fans after Wales. But now, i think these are just prejudices against football fans ideas of the 80s and 90s this is no longer true, i have never seen a problem between two groups of fans at international level in cardiff.

“You still get idiots if Cardiff play against Swansea, but it was an international game in the center of the capital of Wales on a national legend’s 100th cap, and you say there is no tall football? “

Greg left Kongs and enjoyed his night at the Walkabout, then the Boom Battle Bar, without being told to cover his shirt in either location.

WalesOnline asked Kongs about their football shirt policy and if people were allowed to display rugby shirts in the bar.

A spokesperson said, “Kong’s door policy is in place for the safety of our customers and staff. This means that from time to time, people may be denied access or asked to leave the premises. This policy may not be right for everyone, but the safety of our staff and customers comes first. “

Memorabilia belonging to Oasis stars Noel and Liam Gallagher are expected to sell for thousands of pounds at auction.

A football shirt worn by Noel and an iconic tambourine used by Liam were rescued from a skip.

The custom jersey was one of two specially designed in the 90s.

READ MORE:

Noel wore the jersey during a charity football game. He made an appearance for Bolt Makers Arms FC in 1996.

Although the brothers are known to be staunch supporters of Manchester City, the personalized jersey is a deep magenta red with “Oasis” and “N.Gallagher 7” on the back.

The beaten tambourine was used by Liam during the recording of “What’s The Story Morning Glory” – one of the best-selling albums of all time.

The instrument is often associated with the leader of Oasis and was dropped at the end of the recording session by Nick Brine.

Nick, an independent producer and sound engineer who worked on the album, now sells Oasis memorabilia he collected during his 28-year career in the music business.

The Noel Gallagher shirt is expected to cost between £ 1,000 and £ 1,500.

Tambourine could make between £ 300 and £ 500 when it goes under the hammer next month.

Nick is also parting with another football shirt from the charity match, designed for Oasis co-founder Paul Arthurs, which is estimated to be worth between £ 800 and £ 1,000.

Nick, 44, from Monmouth, Wales, but now living in Alicante, Spain, said: “The tambourine was used during the recording of ‘What’s The Story Morning Glory’.

“It was pretty messed up by the end of the session and was going to be thrown out. But I claimed it.

“It has been used on numerous recordings since by bands such as Teenage Fanclub, The Darkness, Kasabian, Arctic Monkeys, Seasick Steve, Steve Harley, Supergrass and The Verve.”



Tambourine used by Liam Gallagher
Tambourine used by Liam Gallagher, estimate £ 300- £ 500.

The football shirts also came into Nick’s possession during a recording session for Oasis’ third album, “Be Here Now”, released in 1997.

He added: “In 1996, Oasis decided to sponsor one of its local advertising teams.

“Adidas made a bespoke kit for the team and unique shirts for the band members, each with their name on the back.

“Bonehead (Paul Arthurs) and Noel kindly gave me their shirts at Abbey Road Studios in London while recording their album Be Here Now.

“I was the engineer for the session.”

Nick is also selling part of a Danelectro sitar, estimated at £ 150-200, which was smashed on stage by The Darkness lead singer Justin Hawkins.

Nick added, “It was owned by Justin Hawkins, singer of The Darkness, and was used on several of his recordings.

“He broke it on stage. The top half ends up in the crowd, I believe at the Reading Festival.

“I got the bottom half back. It still works! “

Nick started his career at Rockfield Studios in Monmouthshire, Wales in 1993 at the age of 16.

The studios are renowned in the music world for hosting the crème de la crème of British pop and rock talent.

Over a 12 month period in 1996-97, the Rockfield sessions resulted in five UK number one albums from Oasis, Black Grape, The Charlatans and The Boo Radleys.

Other famous groups have recorded Manic Street Preachers, Robert Plant and Coldplay there.

He is best known for recording Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody in 1973.

The iconic rock memorabilia pieces will be sold by Hansons Auctioneers in Etwall, Derbys. On November 2.

Josh McCarthy, Music Memorabilia Appraiser at Hansons, said: “I am absolutely delighted to be able to put these rock treasures up for auction.

“These are iconic items by iconic musicians who remind us that Britain is a melting pot of immense talent.

“Thanks to Nick, the provenance is second to none and I expect worldwide interest in these lots.

“They deserve to do well. This is an opportunity to own a slice of British rock history.”

“I thought it was all over; it’s not now! Soccer jersey entrepreneur to boost business https://rigelgroupllc.com/i-thought-it-was-all-over-its-not-now-soccer-jersey-entrepreneur-to-boost-business/ Sun, 11 Jul 2021 07:00:00 +0000 https://rigelgroupllc.com/i-thought-it-was-all-over-its-not-now-soccer-jersey-entrepreneur-to-boost-business/ When the pandemic first hit in March 2020, Dan Hinksman’s company was on the cusp of a much-needed breakthrough.

When the pandemic first hit in March 2020, Dan Hinksman’s company was on the cusp of a much-needed breakthrough.

After being launched in 2019, sales of his rock and roll-themed football shirts had finally started to pick up steam, and he was about to take his big break by selling them at a concert. .

But, as the country went into lockdown and outdoor events were cancelled, Dan, 44, from Accrington, Lancashire, saw orders come to a halt.

Dan Hinksman’s rock ‘n’ roll themed football shirt business was doing well before Covid hit

He said: “A tribute band called The Clone Roses were going to play in front of 1,500 people to mark the 30th anniversary of the Stone Roses playing Spike Island, and my name came up to sell my wares on the night.

“I was on cloud nine because I felt like I was about to have a breakthrough that I was desperately looking for.

“Then Covid hit. This event could have provided me with key visibility, and I could have made a lot of money to invest and grow faster than I could have – and suddenly everything was washed away.

Dan, like thousands of other small business owners across the country, has seen his income plummet.

He said: “Almost overnight my orders stopped.

“People just weren’t spending. Orders picked up when the weather started to improve last summer, but would fall again.

“I thought when bands announced tours I might sell a few shirts out the back, but a lot of bands just sat around and didn’t want to announce anything.

“I kind of have my fingers crossed that the Gallagher brothers bury the hatchet and reform. It would do me the greatest good!

Dan had to take a part-time job to make ends meet during lockdown but hopes advertising on MailOnline will help him push his business forward now that restrictions are easing

Dan had to take a part-time job to make ends meet during lockdown but hopes advertising on MailOnline will help him push his business forward now that restrictions are easing

Dan was ineligible for government assistance and was forced to find a part-time job that allowed him to “breathe” and make ends meet.

It’s now that lockdown restrictions are easing that Dan thinks sales will start to pick up again.

THE RESULTS:

  • Cost: £4,000
  • Ad impressions (how many times ads were viewed): 1,052,657
  • Web traffic spike
  • “This type of brand exposure is like gold dust”

“It’s been a challenge when you think you have something you’re passionate about and feel it slipping through your fingers through no fault of your own. It’s heartbreaking.

“The way things have been over the past 12 months, I have to raise awareness of what I’m doing. It’s worth its weight in gold to me.

It is with small and medium-sized business owners in mind that MailOnline has launched a new advertising platform.

Ad Manager aims to help businesses recover from the burgeoning pandemic, with targeted campaigns that showcase their products or services to MailOnline’s massive 25 million audience.

And Dan was one of the first companies to try it, with his campaign racking up over a million impressions in just one week.

“I’m over the moon with the amount of exposure and the number of eyes this ad has landed on. Not in a million years, I would have expected.

“In addition to brand awareness, I’ve seen an increase in my web traffic – and I know that’s coming from MailOnline, as it’s easy to see it on the Ad Manager system.

“It’s a fantastic team; anytime I had questions they were answered promptly, with great communication.

‘I’m shocked. Ad Manager is cutting edge, and that’s exactly what businesses like mine need.”

The new self-service advertising manager makes it easier to advertise on MailOnline. Setup only takes a few minutes and your campaign can be live in less than 24 hours.

You can advertise to more people in your area than your local titles can reach, and you can target by zip code, interests, and life stage to reach as many customers as you want.

There are no hidden costs and you can control everything from budget to target audience to creative design.

Here’s how:

BEHIND THE COMPANY

Dan first came up with the idea for Rock ‘N’ Roll football shirts while working at a soft drink company, where he had worked for 16 years.

He’s always been interested in football kits from a design perspective – and he admits to being a ‘huge’ music lover.

He explains: “It was during the World Cup in 2018 that I had the idea of ​​combining my two passions.

“I had no idea at the time that it was going to be my thing. It was more ‘it would be a good idea if someone else did it’.

Dan had been saving for a new car and decided to use the money to buy the kit he needed to make the football shirts – and set about learning how to make them.

“I did it for fun at first. But then I ended up taking a dismissal. I decided to bite the bullet. I had never done anything like this before in my life.

In October 2019, Dan was ready to launch his website – but it was harder than he expected, and Christmas sales were lower than he had expected.

He then had a stroke of luck when his friends attended a concert by the Clone Roses tribute band and presented one of Dan’s shirts to lead singer Gavin Scott, who loved it.

Dan then inquired about selling his merchandise at their next gig, which the band agreed to, resulting in sales and great exposure.

It was just before their next gig, where Dan was going to sell his shirts to a wider audience, that Covid hit.

Dan added: “I don’t want to get my fiddle out because there are people in much worse situations than me.

“You just have to put it in the back of your mind and just say ‘look, these are the cards you’ve been dealt, you just have to play them as best you can’. But it gets to you.

Mason Mount gave the youngster his jersey after England beat Denmark in the semi-finals of the Euros last night.

England are through to the Euros final after beating Denmark 2-1 in the semi-finals last night.

The atmosphere across England was electric last night, but nowhere more so than Wembley Stadium where proud fans cheered on Kane, Sterling and Pickford.

And a little girl in the crowd got more than she bargained for at the end of the game and Mason Mount gave her his football jersey of the game.

In footage captured by another fan in the stands, Mount can be seen pushing his way through the crowd and handing his shirt to the girl – and his face says it all.

The young girl, who was wearing her own England shirt at the time, burst into tears of joy as she held the shirt close to him, hugging her father in celebration.

Mount can be seen in the footage watching the girl’s sweet reaction, smiling to himself.

People have viewed the video online millions of times, with comments from English fans.

One person wrote on the video: “What makes it even better is that Mount looks at the girl and sees what it means to her. He didn’t have to do it at all, but he got to see in that brief moment what a difference it made.”

Another commented: “It’s amazing. He made this day girls and Euros. She will never forget this moment.”

A third shared: “Everything you need to know about Mount and this team. A new generation that has reconnected the England squad with their fans.”

England will now face Italy in the Euro 2020 final after beating Denmark 2-1.

It was a tense game last night, especially for England fans after Mikkel Damsgaard’s free-kick left them behind in the first half.

However, it was Raheem Sterling who made it 1-1 after his attack on goal sent Simon Kjaer into an own goal.

In injury time, Harry Kane sealed England’s fate in the tournament by scoring on the rebound from his missed penalty.

Italy v England will take place at Wembley Stadium this Sunday, kicking off at 8:00 p.m. Coverage begins on ITV at 6.30pm.

This year Friday soccer jersey is slated for November 20, raising money for the Bobby Moore Fund – and the campaign pitted two North London heroes against each other.

Arsenal midfielder Jordan Nobbs and Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane encourage fans to wear a football shirt with pride at home, work or school and donate £ 5 to Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK.

England captain Moore, the 1966 World Cup winner, died of bowel cancer in 1993. His widow Stephanie Moore MBE established the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK shortly thereafter and the fund has since raised over £ 27million for bowel cancer research.

England stars Nobbs and Kane also took part in a challenge of who could put on the most shirts in 60 seconds – filmed before COVID.

“I never had the chance to meet Bobby, but all football fans know about his exploits as a player and a leader,” England captain Kane said.

“I will be wearing my Football Shirt on Friday to honor his memory and raise funds to help beat bowel cancer. It doesn’t matter who you support, just pick a shirt and get your friends and colleagues involved if you can. Let’s make Bobby proud.

“Football Shirt Friday is so important in raising money to help fight bowel cancer,” Nobbs added.

“It doesn’t matter if you are at home, at work or at school on Friday 20th November, just be sure to wear your football shirt and donate £ 5 for life-saving bowel cancer research . ”

To donate £ 5 to the Bobby Moore Fund, text SHIRT on 70180 or visit the cancer research website

A man from Co Down who hopes to score with a new retro football shirt business in Belfast, has told how he encountered lines of customers on its opening day.

Ryan Gilmore, from Bangor, opened the NI Classic Shirt Co store at Smithfield Market on Saturday.

The 32-year-old, which is considered the first of its kind in Northern Ireland, sells classic soccer jerseys from the 80s to 2015.

Jerseys include those of international teams from around the world, as well as UK and Ireland and league jerseys, with “nothing out of bounds”.

Former public servant Ryan said the age of the customer depends on what is considered “retro.”

“People in their thirties and forties think the ’90s are retro, but for people in their twenties, they look from 2000 to 2015. They think it’s really old,” he said.

“When they see shirts older than that, they treat them like dinosaur bones or something.”

He said there are no remakes, all the shirts are originals, which he sources from around the world.

“It started with just buying locally and using similar websites or ebay, but now we buy the products wholesale from all over the world,” he said.

“There were two that made a splash on Saturday. There was a Boca Juniors, from 1992. It was an away shirt, it’s super rare and a West Germany away shirt from 1988.”

The Bangor man said interest in the store, especially on the day it opened, had been “insane”.

“There was a weather warning, we thought no one was coming but the queue was there,” he said.

“There is a big market for it. We ship to people all over the world because our prices are always better.”

A young sexual assault victim from Derbyshire has bravely come forward after seeing a team football shirt supported by her attacker.

Derby Crown Court has learned how the girl revealed to her mother that she had been indecently assaulted when she saw the Sheffield United shirt on television.

She recounted how she had been sexually touched by James Furniss years before. He then slapped her and told her she was mean.

The now 32-year-old offender then disappeared for more than two years before making his way to a police station to surrender.

And he also failed to show up for his first sentencing hearing last month because in the judge’s words “he knew he was going to jail for a long time.”

Judge Shaun Smith QC said: “When you were younger you did something that you had never done before and have never done since.

“As such, it is an inexplicable and isolated incident but it is an incident of real horror for the young victim.

“You pulled her panties down and sexually assaulted her. It hurt her and she told you to stop and you did.

“But not before he blamed her by telling her she was mean and slapping her.”

“I accept that your remorse is sincere because you pleaded guilty on the day of the trial.

“This means that, if you had been convicted after a trial, you could still have said ‘the jury was wrong.’ She will at least take some comfort knowing that everyone knows she was telling the truth. .

Jonathan Dee, prosecuting, said the breach took place in South Derbyshire over five years ago.

He said Furniss and the girl, who at the time was under 13, were in a house and that was when he sexually assaulted her.

Mr Dee said the case came to a head around two years later when the victim saw a Sheffield United football club jersey worn by someone on television. It reminded him of what Furniss, who supports the team, had done to him.

He said at the time that she revealed to her family what had happened and that they surrendered to the police.

Mr Dee said: “The case took a long time (to get to court) as it took the police the best part of two and a half years to find the accused.

“They searched for the details and continued to find the same address in Sheffield.

“They spoke to his mother but nothing was done until he walked into a police station in Sheffield and was arrested.”

Mr. Dee read part of a victim impact statement made by the girl’s mother.

In it, she said: “She (the victim) calls the accused a ‘monster’ and certain harmless things, like seeing someone with the same hair color or seeing someone wearing a particular football shirt, triggered it. “

Furniss, of Birklands Avenue, Handsworth, Sheffield, pleaded guilty to one count of indecent assault on a girl under 13.

He has no previous convictions.

Andrew Vout, prosecutor, said his client pleaded guilty on the day of the trial, which saved the victim from having to relive her ordeal in a public forum.

He added that Furniss recently attempted suicide.

In addition to prison, the accused will be registered for life on the sex offender register.

Derbyshire Police said they did not have a photo of Furniss in custody.
