George ‘Geordie’ Armstrong served Arsenal for 27 years as both a player and a coach, before being cruelly taken from his family and his club whilst coaching the Arsenal reserves at London Colney – he collapsed suddenly on the training pitch having suffered a brain haemorrhage in October 2000 – and never recovered.
The author, Dave Seager, successfully paints a remarkable picture – reliving stories and recollections of those who loved him; those who were fortunate to call him their friend; those who played alongside him; those who watched him play week in week out and those who were coached by him. There are also dozens of never before published action shots and pictures from George’s own personal photographic collection to enjoy.
“I can’t state how much of a must this is for any Arsenal fan, and not just those lucky ones who regularly watched him dashing down the wing at Highbury.”
Mark Andrews – Arsenal Historian
“Geordie Armstrong On The Wing made me feel the loss of someone I wish I knew and that is the highest praise I can give it as well as everyone involved with it.”
Anu Nande – Football Paradise
“Stephen King once described books as “ a uniquely portable magic “. Upon finishing ‘Geordie on the Wing’ by Dave Seager I would have to concur with him. I never had the chance to watch Armstrong play or meet him but thanks to the experiences shared in this book, I feel like I know him.”
