Jackie Milburn Scores Hat-Trick For England – Quality Vintage Video Footage

8 years ago

I must admit to my shame that I didn’t even know Jackie Milburn had scored a hat-trick for England and equally so, had no idea that such outstanding video footage of the event exits – view below.

The occasion is the British Home Championships which used to be a yearly event with England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland playing a mini-league at the end of each season.

That is now long gone but it used to be a bug end of season occasion, now overtaken by friendlies against Azerbaijan and such like. Progress I think it is called…

Anyway, this footage sees England visit Wales for a crucial match because this was no ordinary British Home Championship.

As well as the honour of outdoing the local rivals, this year’s event also saw the top two in the end of season event also qualify for the 1950 World Cup in Brazil.

Jackie Milburn wore his customary number 9 and turned in a man of the match perfromance, lucky for us that the footage does him justice.

There great goals for Wor Jackie and I must admit I’ve never before seen footage where he has headed the ball so much.

Go to the video screen below to watch Jackie in action for his country.
