"WOR JACKIE HAZ FINALLY COME YEM!"---AT LAST!"

Posted  '8:15am bells' Tuesday 24th April 2012
"WELCOME YEM JACKIE!"


Yesterday afternoon the Jackie Milburn statue, which haz stood on St James' Boulevard for a number of years haz been moved to a site on the corner of 'The Gallowgate End' and opposite 'The Strawberry' boozer.
It originally stood in Northumberland Street which for those of yoo who divvint naa iz the main shoppin' street in 'The Toon'.
(We could never understand why hiz statue waz put there az he never played on Northumberland Street?)

'The Gallowgate End' waz 'Wor Jackie's' favourite end of the groond, so it's very appropriate that he haz now 'come yem at last'!
