Jim Platt releases his book

Another 50th anniversary remembered as . . .

We are all aware of the anniversary celebrations at Coleraine on Saturday.

Well there’s another 50th anniversary celebration taking place with a strong Showgrounds connection.

Former Coleraine player manager Jim Platt was part of the 1973/74 championship winning Middlesbrough team.

Now the former Northern Ireland international goalkeeper has written a book about that season at Ayresome Park.

Jim will be signing copies of his book in the ‘Boro club shop ahead of Monday’s game between Middlesbrough and Leeds United at the Riverside stadium.

As we remembered the ’74 Coleraine team at the weekend, it’s worth recalling that Jim assembled a fantastic squad of players during his time in charge in the 80’s.
