News that life long Toon fan Brendan Foster haz been given a knighthood in the Queen's borthday honours list haz reached The Geordie Times!
In 1974 Brendan won a race aroond the old Wembley track before the FA Cup final between NUFC and The Liverbirds!
He wore a black n white striped vest for the occasion!
I woz there, and this is the one and anly time I have seen him race! Unfortunately, that's the anly thing in black n white stripes that won that day, as Liverpoool won 3-0 in the match that followed!
And then of course Brendan woz the founder of The Great North Run, the worlds biggest half marathon!
Beleeeve it or not, 'little old me' did the 3rd Great North Run in 1983--I did it in 2hrs 35mins!
Congratulations Sir Brendan from 'us' and aall NUFC fans!
