Mary Earps shirts sell out within hours of going on sale

England keeper Mary Earps hailed fans' "incredible support" after the long-overdue Lionesses goalkeeper kit sold out within hours of going on sale.

England kit makers Nike finally allowed fans to buy the women's home, away and third goalkeeper shirts through the FA website on Monday but even with no formal announcement about their availability, all available supply was quickly snapped up.

Nike had previously come under fire from fans and Earps herself during the Women's World Cup in August, with fans able to purchase the Lionesses' outfield home and away shirts, shorts and socks - but no goalkeeper kit.

The Manchester United goalkeeper won the Golden Glove at the World Cup, where she saved a penalty in the Lionesses' 1-0 final defeat to Spain.

Nike originally defended its decision in the days after the final, saying they were "working towards solutions for future tournaments".

Earps called the decision "hugely disappointing and very hurtful" before the brand announced a U-turn less than a week later, and announced a "limited" supply of shirts would be available to purchase.

After news of the sell-out on Monday, Earps took to Instagram to express her delight, posting on her stories: "Didn't realise these were going on sale today. And you've sold them out already!
