Some of the black and white footage available now of England and Newcastle’s past glories is very easy on the eye.

Our offering today goes right back to a Festival of Britain match between England and Argentina.

England lined up on 9 May 1951 against Argentina with;

It is great that this enhanced footage enabling us to see Jackie Milburn in his prime.

As you will see from the footage, Milburn is at the heart of the action and despite Argentina taking the led, Mortensen manages an equaliser.
