Biographical Text

When Frank Broome first quit St James’ park, the club appointed Glen Wilson for player-manager. He had been the club’s captain for five years, missing only one game when they won promotion to the Second Division in 1957-8.
Wilson was not originally on City’s list of applicants for the vacant position, but the directors had had their eye on him for some time. Although he continued to play in a lot of City’s games, the financial restraints placed on managers at this period of the club’s history added to the difficulties of being able to create improvements.
Indeed, another application for re-election had to be made at the end of seasons 1960-61. On the contrary, a day after City beat Chester 5-0, Wilson was sacked along with trainer Eddie Nash.
