Anyone know where I can get any plates/bowls with the stoke city crest on or something simalar?
Unfortunately dave, there are always some posters on here always a bit too quick with the smart arse replies.
To respond to your question, I think that the club are very protective of the marque, so I wouldn't imagine that the kind of stuff you're looking for would be available from anywhere else other than the club shop.
Just a quick note, a lot of club shop stuff (if not all of it) isn't made in Stoke-on-Trent. I had a load of mugs in the late 80s/for most of the 90s which were (still are) really good quality. 20 years of being bunged in the dishwasher, dropped, thrown and it's still in pretty good nick. Bought one a couple of seasons ago, made in china, and after 2/3 years it's faded and chipped like a motherbitch. Someone get on to Tony Scholes and demand that all Stoke City ceramics be made in Stoke!
