Newcastle Region 5 a side winners 1978. Exchange Place, Middlesbrough.

L-R: Bob Baxter, John Williams, Keith Telford, Eric Robson, Colin Truran.

We beat Grey Street, Newcastle in the final on sudden death penalties.

It was 5-5 at full time. They took the first penalty and Keith Telford saved it.

I took our penalty and hammered it into the back of the net my 14th goal of the competition and top scorer!

Fantastic day out I remember on the day (a Sunday) I hadn't got in until 4 am in the morning.

Something to do with a girl called Beryl (we did end up getting married!).
