More Magpie Memories

Malcolm Holt

After the success of Magpie Memories, published by Breedon Books in 2004, Malcolm Holt has conducted   personal interviews with a second selection of Newcastle United footballers who have played for the club over the years. Through their recollections of playing for the Magpies the book charts the fortunes and misfortunes of the club and highlights the special bond between players and supporters.
Included in the new book are Ken Prior (1952-52/1956-57), Dave Hollins (1961-67), Keith Kettleborough (1966), Jim Scott (1967-70), Irving Nattrass (1970-79), Tony Green (1971-73), John Tudor (1971-76), Micky Burns (1974-78), Mick Martin (1978-83), John Anderson (1982-92), Billy Whitehurst (1985-86) and Warren Barton (1995-2002). The players reminisce freely about life as footballers in the North-East: training regimes, match-day routines, their teammates and life off the pitch.
This fascinating book is another in-depth look at what it is like to have a long career with an historic club and is sure to appeal to anyone with an interest in the history of Newcastle United and its players.
