Malcolm's name lives on in new yearbook

By Stuart McKinley

Throughout local football it's always been affectionately known as 'Malcolm's book' or 'The Brodie Bible'– now it's official.

The late former Belfast Telegraph Sports Editor's name lives on as his name now adorns The Malcolm Brodie Northern Ireland Soccer Yearbook.

Filled with all the usual historical facts and figures that the football statisticians love, the 2014-15 publication is a must for all supporters.

In addition to the regular round-up of the previous season at senior, intermediate, junior and international levels, there are a number of special features.

With Windsor Park currently undergoing a major redevelopment, there is a brief history lesson, with the best five moments in the old stadium recorded – Northern Ireland greats David Healy and George Best figure in two each, with Healy's winner against England coming in at number one.

There is also a tribute to David Jeffrey, who left Linfield at the end of last season after 17 years in charge of the club.

Also honoured is the legendary Jimmy Jones, the Irish League's record goalscorer, who died earlier this year.

e The Malcolm Brodie Northern Ireland Soccer Yearbook 2014-15 is available in shops now, priced £2.95.
