On July 10th, the world of football lossed one of its most charismatic figures of the past 60 years, Jack Charlton. As a player he was a part of the great Leeds team of the 60's & 70's. He was also a member of the English team who won the 1966 World Cup on their own soil. He managed several clubs side once his playing days ended but it was his exploits with the Republic Ireland from 1986 to 1996 which stands out massively from his managing days as he brought our country to its first major tournament in Germany at Euro 88 and two successive world cup appearances, with the first seeing us reach the last 8 at Italia 90. I caught up with one of Jack's biggest performers from the past Packie Bonner yesterday and we paid tribute to the memory of this great legendary figure who has sadly left us but who has left a mountain of great memories.
