News that the Jackie Milburn statue, currently on St James' Boulevard, is finally 'comin' home' iz great news for aall Toon fans!

Originally positioned in Northumberland Street for some puzzlin' reason? (he neva played there az far as we're aware?) and then moved to it's present site some time ago, when Blenheim Street became St James' Boulevard, it iz now to be placed ootside 'The Gallowgate End', opposite 'The Strawberry'

'The Gallowgate End' was Wor Jackie's favourite end of the groond, so it's anly fittin' that he shud finally end up there!
