FAIRS CUP GOLDEN JUBILEE

Posted '2:15pm bells' Tuesday 11th September 2018




Amazingly its 50 years ago tooneet since NUFC played wor forst ever game in Europe when we took on Feyenoord under the floodlights at St James' Park and your trueleee woz there to witness the 4-0 win in front of a 46,000 plus crowd! (Jimmy Scott, Pop Robson, Tommy Gibb and Wyn Davies got the goals!)

In total NUFC have played 73 home games in the various European competitions since 1968 and I have been to every one!---which makes me feel quite old! ("Quick!---pass mee zimmer frame!")

'The Ronny Gill' (The Toon's local rag) and John 'Fairs Cup' Gibson have done a 2 page spread aboot that game today and yoo can bet your bottom dollar that aall the Fairs Cup games after this will get the same 'Gibbo' treatment!
