Hard as nails and fast as lightening is my recollection of him.

 

Good bloke

 

He was a decent defender for somebody who came from the lower leagues.  Christ, we were in the shit during those days when we had him, Shoulder and Cartwright all coming into the same side from non-league football.

Best wishes to him, never realised he was a Wallsend lad, thought he was from up Blyth way.  did he ever play for us in Div one?  think I can remember him getting some games in the promotion season?

He scored the winner at Leicester in our first game back in the First Division. United are back, United are back....what a day that was!

 

All the best to him.

was there that game, could only remember David Mcreerys goal, just thinking there, he probs played until we signed roeder as CB.

 

edit, he must have signed for us after Blyths cup run in 78? that had 40 odd thousand at Sjp.

Very likeable lad and popular with the crowd because of his uncompromising style.

Seem to remember he worked at the airport as a baggage handler during his non league days prior to signing for NUFC. Don't suppose that will ever happen again.

Good luck and all the best Stevie lad !!

I would have rather kept Carney than Roeder, who I couldn't stand.  Roeder was called "a cultured defender," I couldn't stand the way he would grab hold of opposition players and his shuffle was embarrassing, cultured my arse.

Shoulder and Carney both signed after the FA Cup run.

I've still never seen the other goal McReery scored at Spurs. Wasn't it a 30 yard screamer or something ? Seem to recall it was a great long range shot.

 

really cant recall it at all, is that all he scored 2?  always liked him as a player- had an horendous injury right in front of me in the paddock.
