    We could certainly do with a player of his stature today

    Oddly enough at the times he played for the Muckem and the Smoggies he was always held in respect here as a player.

    R.I.P.

    He didn't want to leave his home town club of Sunderland but the directors held sway in them days.
    As a schoolboy I used to go to Roker Park when the Toon were away so knew Andersons ability.

    When we signed him a few of my mates at the pit grumbled about signing a Mackem but I put them straight and said I bet Harvey makes him club captain.

    Jim Iley, who is almost 3 months to the day younger than myself looks to have more hair in that picture than he had in the sixties.

    He was a bit of a hard lad too.
