Jackie Milburn's Newcastle United Scrapbook | Jackie Milburn | Book
There could have been no one with a better right than Jackie Milburn to trace the history of Newcastle United, as he did in this fascinating inside story of a famous club.
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 book he recalls United's Second Division championship success of 1965, their magnificent triumph in the 1969 Fairs Cup and their return to Wembley for the 1974 FA Cup final and 1976 League Cup final. All are recaptured in vivid detail along with four eventful seasons of European competition.
