Joe Harvey

For over eight years Joe Harvey had led the black & whites from the front and brought the fifties FA Cup glory days to Tyneside.

Many people would describe him as ‘Mr.Newcastle’ because  he came back and rebuilt the team as manager over an outstanding thirteen year period.

The pinnacle of course was his superb man management as he kidded his team all the way to the final of the Fairs Cup and ultimately European glory.
