Jackie Milburn

Jackie’s initials J.E.T. were so appropriate for a player who legend had it could catch pigeons.

‘Wor Jackie’ picked up three fifties cup winning medals, scoring three goals in the process. A man who nobody ever seemed to have a bad word for, Jackie’s longstanding goals record was eventually broken by Alan Shearer and Jackie’s family were adamant that if the great man had still been around, he would have been willing Alan on to beat his record.
