World Cup 1958 Reunion – Belfast Telegraph

Very recent article of mine from the Belfast Telegraph (July 2014). It features the reunion of two of the surviving five players from the Northern Ireland World Cup squad from 1958 with the little Swedish boy (now 69 years old!) who was their mascot and friend in Halmstad in Sweden that summer as they progressed to the quarter finals. The reunion was set up for the documentary I’m making about the Northern Irish squad’s achievements entitled Spirit of ’58 and you can read other bits and bobs about the filming at our Facebook Page. Click on the image below to link to a larger image where you can hopefully magnify it further for reading.
