Mexborough football legend Eric Brook honoured at last

MEXBOROUGH-born football hero Eric Brook will finally be honoured with a plaque in his home town — with another Manchester City legend lined up to do the honours. 

Mike Summerbee will perform the official unveiling for the late England international and former City record goalscorer (pictured) at 10.30am tomorrow (Friday), at the Mexborough Athletic Sport Ground at Hampden Road and New Oxford Road.

Also in attendance will be MP Ed Miliband, who helped campaign for a plaque and some of Eric’s relatives, who still live in the Mexborough area.
