Newcastle FC striker Andy Carroll becomes Umbro brand ambassador

Sportswear brand Umbro has announced that Newcastle and England striker Andy Carroll, has signed to become a brand ambassador.

Through the deal, Carroll, who plays for recently promoted Premier League team Newcastle, will wear the classic Umbro Speciali boot, the first sports deal of his career, and will see him become a regular face for Umbro products, on-and-off the field.

Andy Carroll commented: “I’m delighted to sign with Umbro. The Speciali is a classic leather boot, that’s really comfortable to wear and importantly this season I’ve been scoring goals wearing them. That goal against Liverpool was particularly memorable. It’s an exciting time in my career and I’m pleased to have Umbro’s support.”
