    Bedlington Man Plays for Manchester United

    Agree what a great photo, complete with names. I would be very interested to know the first name of the Mrs McGlen. I have quite a bit of detail about the McGlen family. When I was an apprentice at Doctor Pit I was working with Jack Crammer and a William McGlen, another apprentice. When I got home and told my mum who I was working with she told me William McGlen was related and my research since confirms this.

    Ovalteeny, I believe you are correct. The photo with John Brody was taken in my first year with Bedlington Juniors which was about 1963. I started my apprenticeship in October 1962. After that the following season Tex Dixon, Les Nicholson and Harry Wilson played. But it was a long time ago, great photos which brings back the memories.

    Bedlington Man Plays for Manchester United

    Eggy Thanks for the info. I see John Brodie was mentioned. He was a good player and played Sunday League with Cambois Rowing Club when I played with them.
  6. Family trees can be full of surprises. While gathering information for mine I came across a relative who played for Manchester United from 1946 to 1951. William McGlen was born in Bedlington in 1921. His parents were Daniel, a coal hewer, and Mary Ann McGlen who lived at Doctor Terrace and Beatty Road Bedlington. William who served an apprenticeship as a bricklayer served in the RAF during the Second World War. William, a wing half, played for Blyth Spartans and was set to join Notts County when he was signed up to play for Manchester United by Matt Busby in 1946. In the post war years he played fairly regularly at left back or left half (old terminology). In total he played 110 league games and 12 FA Cup games for Manchester United. William scored two goals during his spell with the Reds. After Manchester United he played with Lincoln City and Oldham Athletic. In 1957, he became trainer for Lincoln City where he stayed for ten years before becoming manager of Skegness Town 1967/8. William died in 1999 in Lincolnshire. Are there any other stories of Bedlington men who played for big football clubs?

    No 11 - may not be correct. I recognise his face - first name could be Derek (nickname Skin!), then again it was about 60 years ago!!
