|THE 'ALDER SWEENEY' MEMORIAL GARDEN' AT ST. JAMES' PARK
On this day nine years ago John Alder 'The Undertaker' and Liam Sweeney 'From the Lamp' were on their way to New Zealand to watch The Toon in pre season friendlies.
They never got there az their plane waz shot doon ower The Ukraine and they perished alang with nearly 300 others!
We played Gatesheed in an away friendly yesterday, but we are sure that both John and Liam will 'both be there', lookin' doon from heaven watchin' NUFC!
They may be lost but they will never be forgotten by those who knew them well (like me) and those who had never met them!
