St Johnstone star Craig Bryson is raising funds for a good cause with his match-worn Derby County shirt ahead of the Saints’ test with Kilmarnock.

The experienced midfielder returned to Scottish football with Aberdeen following a lengthy association with Derby last year. He joined St Johnstone in the summer as his Dons spell was blighted by injury.

Ahead of the Killie match, the midfielder is auctioning off his 2014 Championship play-off final shirt. He featured in the match as the Rams faced Queen’s Park Rangers.

This is to aid the raising of funds for the crowdfunding campaign to recognise Reg Harrison’s life-time contribution to football in Derby.

Harrison was the last surviving member of  Derby County’s 1946 FA Cup winning team when he died in September at the age of 97.

Bryson tweeted: “I am auctioning off my match-worn Derby County 2014 play-off final shirt (vs QPR) to raise funds for Rams Heritage’s #RememberingReg campaign T-shirt. The auction will run until Sunday 8 November at 7pm.”

Rams Heritage Trust responded, saying: “What an amazing gesture from a modern icon of Derby County. Thank you Bryso.”

The crowdfunding effort has a goal of £8,000 and at the time of writing, the highest bid on Bryson’s shirt is £1,200, which will go a long way to reaching this charitable goal.
