Arthur recalls: “Both Bobbie and Jack Charlton are Geordies and were brought up in the coal mining villages of the North east where kickabouts are played in the streets and footballers started their training. Here Jack joins some young lads playing football near to his mother’s house which was in College Road. We understand that the street in the picture is 10th Row, Ashington.”

Biography: John ‘Jack’ Charlton, OBE, DL, the former footballer and manager who played for Leeds United in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s and was part of the England team who won the 1966 World Cup. He is the brother of former Manchester United and England footballer Bobby Charlton.
Charlton was part of the successful Leeds United side of the 1960s and 1970s, winning a League Championship (1969), and FA Cup (1972), a League Cup (1968) and two Fairs Caps (1968 and 1971) and made a club record 773 appearances. He won 35 England Caps and played in every game of the successful 1966 World Cup campaign. In 2006, Leeds United supporters voted Charlton into the club’s greatest ever XI.
Charlton later became a manager of both Domestic and International sides. In his first season as manager, he led Middlesborough to the second division title, for which he was voted manager of the year in 1974. He later took charge of the Republic of Ireland National Team and led them to their first ever World Cup in 1990, where they reached the quarter-finals.
