An Evening With Supermac
Arcot Golf Club, Cramlington
Malcolm Macdonald - ''Supermac''! - entertained a select audience with an abundance of tales from his lengthy career in football.
Supermac rates George Best as the finest player he ever saw and Johnny Giles as the toughest (''his tackles were so late, they would arrive in the middle of the next week'').
Half-time brought with it a number of fund raising events, such as an auction of signed memorabilia (with items signed not just by Malcolm, but also by Geoff Hurst and Alan Shearer). Malcolm was very approachable and was happy to pose for photographs as well as sign snaps taken during his Newcastle and England games.
It was a very entertaining evening and the sort of thing we could with much more frequently here in the North East.
