This bronze statue depicts the footballer John Edward Thompson Milburn (1924-1988), commonly known as 'Wor Jackie'. Born in Ashington, Milburn worked as an apprentice fitter at a coal mine before joining Newcastle United in 1943, scoring 283 goals in 492 appearances. This statue by scuptor Susannah Robinson was erected in 1996 following a campaign by the local newspaper, which raised £35,000 through public donations.
