18 of our favourite sporting Christmas presents as kids

From Subutteo to Roller Blades and everything in between.

WINTER IS COMING and that means one thing. Presents!

Here in TheScore.ie we’ve spent the last few days reminiscing about our childhood, recalling memories of those Christmases that rocked — the year we first got a leather football — to those that didn’t — who wants real books when there are football annuals out there?

Anyway, with the help of our friends on TheJournal.ie and TheDailyEdge.ie here, in no particular order, are some of the best sporting Christmas presents from our childhood.
