1977





Personal Highlights


Played and scored in the YC's first ever game in the Seaham District League in 1963. It was a 3-3 draw with Seaham UDC at the colliery welfare ground, now the home of Seaham Red Star. Unfortunately I can't remember if it was the first or not. I'd like to think it was.

Selected to play and captain the Seaham & District League side for the 1968/1969 and 1969/1970 seasons.

Winning umpteen trophies.

Scoring 85 goals in the season 1972/1973 (the same season Sunderland won the FA Cup).

Playing 400+ games

Scoring around 500 league and cup goals (none were penalties) See
'My Ryhope CA Career' section for the basis of this figure.

Scoring 7 goals in a game twice

Scoring in 11 consecutive games in the 1969/70 season

Scored first of many goals in the cubs first season 1963/1964


Scoring a hat trick in my last season (1978/1979).

Stopping the club from folding in 1970/1971 season by taking on the secretary's job. Although proud of what I did, there are times when I wonder, what direction my career would have gone if the club had folded.

Making an unbelievable number of friends.
