The last Newcastle United manager to lift a trophy has been honoured at St James' Park.
Joe Harvey was the club's captain when they won the FA Cup in 1951 and 1952, and manager for the 1969 Fairs Cup win.
To celebrate his achievements, a memorial plaque has been unveiled at the Gallowgate end of the stadium by his son, Ken Harvey.
The ceremony was also attended by former players including Bob Moncur and Malcolm MacDonald.
Born in 1918, Harvey started his career at Newcastle with the youth team.
He went on to captain the club to victory in two successive FA Cups, before giving up playing in 1953.
Following a stint as a trainer, he moved into management, first at Barrow and Workington, then in 1961 at Newcastle, a post he held for 14 years.
He died, aged 70, in 1989.
Former Newcastle captain Bob Moncur said: "He was a great man-manager and a great character.
"He knew the fans, he knew they wanted entertainers."
