Jackie Milburn Heading Home To Newcastle United

10 years ago

Not before time, the Jackie Milburn statue is to be relocated to the south east corner of the ground outside the Gallowgate End, on the corner opposite the Strawberry pub.

Previously located on Northumberland Street, this particular Wor Jackie statue was paid for with £35,000 the public raised via an Evening Chronicle led appeal.

Having bizarrely been currently positioned a few hundred yards away from St.James’ Park on the road junction as you head up from the Redheugh Bridge, Jackie Milburn is now belatedly coming home at some point this year.
