"I'D WALK A MILLION MILES FOR ONE OF YOUR SMILES!"

Posted 'high noon bells' Munday 19th November 2018


'The Geordie Times' iz very sad to hear aboot the passing of former club captain and left half, Jim Iley who died on Saturday aged 82

Jim played 249 times for NUFC between 1962 and 1969 and scored 16 goals and woz part of the successful promotion team of 1965, scorin the decisive goal to win promotion when we beat Bolton 2-0 on Good Friday 1965

I used to stand in the old The Leazes End in the 1960s and they had their own song for him, which went :
"I'd walk a million miles for one of your smiles, Jim I-ley!" 

RIP JIM
