Tommy Cassidy commented:
"Bobby Robson has done brilliantly for us. I expected a couple of big name players in but he has done us a big favour.
"I know Tommy Craig said that Bobby wanted to help Workington and the sporting public want to come along to watch Premier League players.
"It's a great experience for our players, taking on the likes of Cort, Acuna, Ameobi and Elliott."
Workington Chairman Dale Brotherton added:
"As a Newcastle fan, I'm absolutely thrilled at the team Bobby Robson is sending over and I know he would do anything he can do help us."
again we returned to the now-familiar setting of Borough Park for a
friendly match, as two of our more distinguished players of the 1970's
were pitted against each other.
