Our sincerest condolences to Jack,s Family,
      The great man is travelling  his last mile. Our letters and parcels are all being stamped with a picture of Jack.
 Ashington would have been packed with Green but for the fear of spreading the virus, Still we are busy on the airwaves and saying goodbye  everyway we can.
  From Donegal to Cork and all the East coast we will be thinking of him.  Our Honary Irishman who lifted us up and made us into a team that could knock out the best. His wry warm humour and strong presence will never be forgotten. Jack was a rare human, He had time for a word with everyone and yet he stamped his authority on the job within the first 24 hours. Dissenters got the door. Secretly we loved that and then the winning started we loved that even more. Even his most vocal critic had to admit, We were so lucky to get him. Ballina will be deep in thought reliving all those fantastic memories. The men with the "Bats" will smile. And Lucky we were.  Safe journey  Jack.

True enough Biff I was never a huge football fan but grew up in the age of Leeds domination, the sad demise of both Jack and Norman (bite yer legs) Hunter will give football heaven a great back line.
Off the field a humerous man with a dry wit.
Every Irishman's favourite  Englishman, had the very rare ability to create a team considerably greater than the sum of its parts.
Bon voyage Jack.
