Re­sult! Look at this top line-up

Sunderland Echo - - Retro -

A squad of foot­ball heroes from the golden days of the game were on Wear­side.

Lead­ing the group of some of the re­gion’s soc­cer stars of the 1940s was Liver­pool FC man­ager Bob Pais­ley who was in Washington to open the town’s new­est pub, the Keel Boat at Fat­field.

The squad in­vited to the open­ing was one which would cer­tainly bring back the mem­o­ries of foot­ball’s golden days to the re­gion’s older fans.

There among the line-up was Sun­der­land stars Len Shack­le­ton, Ken Chisholm and Arthur Wright, and for­mer Mid­dles­brough aces Ge­orge Hard­wick and Micky Fen­ton.

Mr Pais­ley, who hails from Het­ton, was back in the re­gion to per­form the open­ing as a favour to friend and for­mer Mid­dles­brough star Harry Bell.
