Iley, Jim I remember Jim Iley's first game with Newcastle. He made pin point cross field passes that hadn't been made at St James' Park in years. The crowd wowed! I wowed too!

Iley, Jim Jim built the foundations for stabilising Barnsley FC financially, which enabled Allan Clark to start the clubs climb back to the Second Division. He was unfairly criticised by fans for selling players, but this was needed to get the club on even keel.
