I went to the same school as Eric McMordie - Orangefield Boys Secondary School. Played lunch time 5 a side football against him several times. I remember he was a very good and tricky player at that time.

I think the dates are wrong as I watched him at Middlesbrough when I was kid in the 60s and early 70s.
Eric McMordie was a contemporary of George Best and had a trial at the same time at Man U. He was offered a contract but returned to Northern Ireland as he was homesick. Soon after he returned to England with Middlesbrough

Had a drink with a couple of guys before a Northern Ireland match in 1972. Turned out the guy who knew everything there was to know about Eric McMordie was his dad.
