MORE than 100 people gathered to play and watch a match which celebrated John ‘Tucker’ Duncan’s participation in football in Belford and north Northumberland for over six decades on Sunday.
Event organiser Owen Weatherhead said: “I can remember being coached by Tucker and his brother Raymond as a nine-year-old.
“He has played for and managed the club and even marked the lines out before a game and is a great servant of the club and the village.”
The two teams were a selection of Belford players past and present and a North Northumberland over 40s and 50s managed by fellow organiser Les Chappel.
The Belford team ran out 6-4 winners.
Tucker said: “I am absolutely blown away by this. It is so good to see so many of the people I have played with over the years here today.”
