It was a great day at St James’ Park. Mick Martin managed the Home side with ‘the one and only’ Peter Beardsley as captain. The Away team was managed by John Carver (Sir Bobby’s No 2) and their playing captain was John Anderson.
It was an evening of lovely weather, as 28 players arrived at Easter Road clutching their kit bags. Despite being nervous, these players were all very excited as they were about to take part in the second game of the Football Aid season.
