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 authorised biography, journalist John Gibson reveals a lot of previously untold stories of Jackie Milburn's career from the back streets of a pit town to the dizzy heights of Wembley and the World Cup with England.
