On This Day in History: June 7

Post  1892NUFF on Wed Jun 08, 2011 6:09 am


A tribute to Newcastle legend Harry Clifton

1938

Chesterfield inside forward Harry Clifton is transferred to Newcastle United. His moves comes a few weeks after Harry came close to playing for England. He was reserve for his country for their match in Germany on May 14,1938, the game that was infamous for the England players’ Nazi salute to Hitler before the kick-off.

Before embarking for four years' army service in the Middle East, however, Harry scored in England's war-time international victory against Scotland at Newcastle’s St James Park.

After one post-war season at Newcastle and three at Grimsby he retired from the full-time game and returned to Chesterfield to work at Sheepbridge and the Tube Works before a spell at the Arkwright Colliery.

In March, 1968, Harry was invited to become the first steward of the newly-built Saltergate club. In later years he returned to Tyneside and died in Newcastle in 1998, at the age of 84. Harry scored 104 goals in 220 League matches.

1961

Jimmy Greaves plays his first match for Milano, a friendly against Botofoga, following his transfer from Chelsea for £80,000.

1993

Nigel Clough signs for Liverpool from Nottingham Forest for £2,275,000. He scores just nine times in his 44 reds appearances, despite a bright start of four goals in his first four games.

2002

Nicolas Anelka joins Manchester City from Paris St. Germain for £13m. He strikes 46 times in 103 games for City before joining Fenerbahçe SK for £7m in January 2005.

1933

Chelsea sign Irish international forward Tom Priestley from Coleraine who stays just a season at Stamford Bridge playing 23 matches and scoring one goal.
