Don Hutchison: The Wembley Wizard


I recently met with Don Hutchison, a miner’s son from Gateshead whose loyalties lay north of the border.

In the first part of this fascinating interview, Don describes how his formative years playing in the local church hall led to a contract with Hartlepool and soon Liverpool. Don talks about his midfield heroes, including Jan Molby and Patrick Vieria, and how he played without fear and with 360-degree vision. The episodes ends with Don describing scoring the winner for Scotland against England at Wembley, a moment that reduced his tough father to tears.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
