Golden Goals | Jackie Milburn | Book
Arguably Newcastle United’s favourite son. 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.
In this revised edition of Golden Goals Milburn added further chapters telling of his experiences in Irish football.
Golden Goals is the story of a happy warrior: a man who enjoyed his football at all levels and gained fame nationally and internationally.
There are fascinating peeps behind the scenes that will enable readers to get to know more about the real Jackie Milburn - modest, shy and likeable.
