Biography: Geordie boy Tait served his league apprenticeship with Oxford, Carlisle and Hull but was still only 23 when Frank Burrows paid Hull City £100,000 for his signature. During the next seven years he gave sterling service but shifted position from attacker to midfield and finally to central defence. His battling performances won the crowd over and earned him a well deserved place in the club's Hall of Fame. Apart from a time with Reading, 'Yosser' has spent the years since in the north-east. He has had spells in management at Hartlepool and Darlington where he was also youth development officer. In May 2009, he was appointed manager of Blyth Spartans for a second time.
