  • Description

    AN EIGHTEEN-YEAR OLD FOOTBALLER SCORED A GOAL TODAY WITHIN THREE MINUTES OF MAKING HIS FIRST APPEARANCE IN LEAGUE FOOTBALL. HE WAS MICKY BOOT, WHO WAS PLAYING AS RIGHT HALF FOR ARSENAL IN THE FIRST DIVISION MATCH AGAINST NEWCASTLE UNITED AT HIGHBURY, LONDON. ARSENAL WON 2-0.

    ARSENAL WERE ON TOP, BOTH IN ATTACK AND DEFENCE, FROM THE START OF THE MATCH. MICKY BOOT PUT HIS TEAM IN THE LEAD WITH A MAGNIFICENT LEFT-FOOT KICK FROM 25 YARDS OUT. BOOT MADE A BIG IMPRESSION ON THE CROWD WITH HIS COOLNESS UNDER PRESSURE AND HIS CALM DISTRIBUTION OF THE BALL.

    ANOTHER YOUNG ARSENAL PLAYER - JOHN WOODWARD - WAS ALSO MAKING HIS LEAGUE DEBUT AND HE, TOO, WAS IMPRESSIVE.

    ARSENAL'S SECOND GOAL CAME WHEN A SHARP CENTRE FROM STOREY WAS TURNED INTO HIS OWN GOAL BY CLARK, ONE OF THE NEWCASTLE FULLBACKS.

    AFTER HALF-TIME, NEWCASTLE COULD MAKE NO IMPRESSION ON THE ARSENAL DEFENCE, WHILE THE ARSENAL FORWARDS CONTINUED THEIR ATTACKS ON THE NEWCASTLE GAOL, BUT WITHOUT MANAGING TO ADD TO THEIR SCORE.

    WITH EIGHTEEN MINUTES TO GO, THE NEWCASTLE GOALKEEPER, GORDON MARSHALL, WAS CARRIED FROM THE FIELD WITH A SLIPPED CARTILAGE.
