Re: Hebburn Argyle Juniors football team - 1979...
The team coach Ronnie Jennkinson who I knew very well,he worked in Palmers joiner shop as a French polisher we worked there at the same time in the 50s.Ronnie was a great sportsman a canny boxer,he was also a great goalkeeper,he was on Newcastles books and I believe played one game for them.Ronnie ran Hebburn Prince Consort FC team late 5os and I displaced him as goalie,Ronnie wanted to play out,for his age he was very fit he was a lovely guy,he just wanted to play sport to give it his all and encouraged every one to do like wise,i am not surprised the Hebburn Argyle Juniors team 1979 lads in the photo did well with him at the helm he was just such a winner in my book and a good friend.
