McFaul, Willie I’m sure Willie won’t remember this but I think I was the first person to greet him back in 1966. I was 14 years old and he asked me to confirm the way up to St James’s Park from somewhere near the Central Station. Little did I know how instrumental he would become at the club.

McFAUL, Willie He was my absolute idol. He used to come to a local school of mine in Blyth Northld and coach football. I remember getting his autograph every week. I joined the night classes just so I could see him. Would love the chance to meet up with him again
