'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Shearer: 'I'm Pleased It Was Here'


Shearer: 'Of course, this will be an afternoon I will cherish for the rest of my life. It was fantastic. All my family was here, which was important. It's my mam's 60th birthday tomorrow, so she can have that one. They're always here watching the games.

'I'm very proud to be sitting up there alongside the great Jackie Milburn. It's a great achievement. I was brought here to score goals, and thankfully that's what I've been doing for the last 10 years now.

'I'm pleased it was here at St James' Park. If I'd had a choice it would have been in front of the Gallowgate End where I used to stand as a kid and watch my heroes. I'm a very happy man right now.

''Just to see my name alongside the great Jackie Milburn is a great honour for me. When I was growing up all everybody talked about was how great Jackie Milburn was. To have my name alongside his is a great honour, and so I'm delighted.'
