Sylvan Ebanks-Blake began his professional career at Manchester United after graduating through the youth ranks at Old Trafford. He was to play just two games for the Premier League giants, both in the League Cup, and he scored in one of them.
In January 2006, he moved to Belgium to gain senior experience playing for Royal Antwerp and he went on to score four goals in nine matches for them.The following July he signed a three year contract with Plymouth Argyle who paid United an initial £200,000 fee. He very quickly became a regular for the south coast club and scored ten goals in his first season with them.His second campaign resulted in a further 13 goals from 29 appearances - six of which were as a substitute. Then, in the January transfer window of 2008, he joined Wolves for an undisclosed fee.
Ebanks-Blake signed a four and a half year deal and he opened his goal account for Wanderers in only his second game.He won the Championship's Golden Boot for the 2007/08 season, scoring a total of 23 goals for Plymouth and Wolves.
In his 5 years at the club,Sylvan has worn the number 9 apart from January-May 2008 when he wore 27.
This shirt came from the Plymouth physio and is unwashed with dried mud in a couple of places.
Took a gamble with this one because you never know what you will find when you take a shirt out of a frame. Luckily this was just pinned to the backboard and came out easily with no damage at all.
Michael wore 37 when he arrived on an emergency two month loan in November 2006.He ended the season as runner up to Matt Murray in the Wolves player of the year.
This was the only shirt that came from the former Wolves employee that was framed. Matchworn by one of my favourite players from recent years.
