JACK CHARLTON O.B.E.

1935 -2020

Leeds United Supporters Club were extremely saddened to hear of the passing of Leeds Legend Jack Charlton on Friday 10th July. Jack won virtually every honour the game could offer in his 23 years at Leeds. His 773 games is a record that will take some beating, if ever. Whilst at Leeds he won a Second Division title, a  League Championship, FA Cup & League Cup as well as 2 Fairs Cup titles, and a Charity Shield. Individual honours came his way via the Football Writer Footballer of the Year Award in 1967, and he was inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame in 2005. International honours came late in life, as he won his first cap when he was approaching 30, 15 months later he was a World Cup Winner! Who will ever forget the iconic picture of him kneeling on the floor, head in hands, at the final whistle! It was as memorable as Moores pass to Hurst for the final goal, but as Jack was always telling people, it was him that passed it to “Mooro” with the instruction to boot it into touch!  After leaving Leeds Jack went on to have success as manager of Middlesbrough, winning the Second division title, Sheffield Wednesday, winning promotion to the First division, and Newcastle, before finding his second spiritual home in Ireland, taking the national team to two World Cups, finishing in the last eight in 1990. After retiring from football he was in demand as an after dinner speaker, where he always went down well. He was Guest Speaker at the LUSC Dinner in 2006, where he had the entire audience in stitches! Described by Don Revie as a “one man awkward squad” and by Pope John Paul II as “The Boss” he was much loved by all who came into contact with him, on and off the field. He will be sadly missed and our thoughts and condolences go out to his family and friends! God Bless Ya Jack!
