Newcastle United Statues

Statue In Newcastle City Centre, Tyne And Wear

Three statues of Newcastle United legends outside St. James Park - Jackie Milburn, Sir Bobby Robson and Alan Shearer.

In homage to our black and white readers on this momentous FA cup final day, our post is about three statues of local legends which you can find at St James Park.

Jackie Milburn

Making 343 appearance for the Toon between 1943-1957 and scoring a record 200 goals, Wor Jackie from Ashington stepping out of the coal mine and into the legend books at Newcastle United.

Winning two FA cup finals in 1951 and 1952, he scored both goals in the former, with one being a 30 yard screamer into the top corner.

Not only does he have a statue at the ground, but he is the only player to have a stand named after him.

Sir Bobby Robson

Probably one of the most loved people in football, regardless of your affiliations, Sir Bobby was born in County Durham in 1933 and would manage a host of top clubs including Barcelona, PSV Eindhoven, Porto, Sporting Lisbon and also the England football team, taking them to the semi-finals of World Cup Italia in 1990 (the one when Gazza cried!).

After a dismal start to the 1999/2000 season with Ruud Gullit, Sir Bobby took over, steadied the ship and soon dispatched Sheffield Wednesday 8-0 so with some lad called Alan scoring 5.

A management career of regularly finishing in the top 5 and being contenders on the big stage in Europe made him a legend at the club. But most people probably remember him for always conducting himself in a gentlemanlike manner.

Alan Shearer

Fresh from his five goal haul at the 1996 Euros, Newcastle United boss Kevin Keegan splashed £15m on the services of Alan Shearer, an incredible transfer record at the time.

Banging in 28 goals on his debut season, Big Al formed a lethal partnership with Les Ferdinand. Appearing in two unsuccessful FA cup finals in the 1990s, Shearer continued his scoring through managerial changes and a host of injuries.

Big Al would stay at St James Park for a decade, captaining them for a large duration, and in January 2006 he finally surpassed Jackie Milburn's record against Portsmouth at the Gallowgate End. His 206th and final goal for the Magpies came in a 4-1 win against Sunderland.

Fingers crossed Eddie Howe's statue will soon be appearing at the cathedral on the hill.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
