Bobby Mitchell Testimonial Match Original Programme
Newcastle United v Bobby Mitchell's XI
A crowd of 40,993 turned out to pay tribute to one of Newcastle's favourite players.
Nicknamed ‘Bobby Dazzler’, Mitchell was an outstanding left winger who picked up winners medals in all three fifties cup finals.
Spending 13 seasons with Newcastle, Bobby was a real crowd favourite with his close control and dribbling ability. After leaving Newcastle he stayed in the area and worked at both Berwick and Gateshead before becoming a well known publican in Newcastle.
A fantastic item of Newcastle United memorabilia.
