Football: David Beckham football shirt competition.

The Mirror have weaved their magic spell to give the David Beckham shirt cock-up a H-appy ending.

We've got 11 "Becks" shirts to give away and make it all white on the night for the followers of Manchester United's new No 7.

And you can guarantee that BECKHAM will be spelled correctly on the back unlike his Wembley one for the Charity Shield where strip makers Umbro dropped their aitch.

The brand new away top, with all the right letters, is yours absolutely free, courtesy of The Mirror and Umbro.

Their top bosses had red faces yesterday morning after the world awoke to the embarrassing blunder. But they were game enough for a laugh and to support The Mirror's great give-away competition.

Umbro managing director, Alan Hadfield, joked: "Yes, we hold our hands up to the mis-spelling and really can't believe it. We got Andrei Kanchelskis's name right on our shirts for four years and then we stumble over Beckham."

Now our lucky readers can grab hold of what has become the hottest shirt since Eric Cantona's famous red 7.
