Jack (John Thomas)
17 Oct 1878
One of THE greatest players of Newcastle United's long history.
His trophy cabinet, for a man who only played for the Magpies throughout his entire career, reads like something you'd expect of Liverpool in the 80s or Manchester United in the 90s. Jack is one of only a handful of players to have won multiple domestic trophies in black and white with 3 League Championships, 1 FA Cup and a Charity Shield. He would also have 2 FA Cup runners up medals.
He played for Newcastle United for 13 years before eventually leaving a legend of his time to become manager of Blackburn Rovers.
Capped twice for England too, he was a true great of our history.
