Football memorabilia owned by England and Newcastle United star Malcolm MacDonald has raised almost thirty six thousand pounds at auction.

'Supermac' played for the Magpies during the 1960s and 70s and became one of the greatest ever number nines.

Supermac's personal collection of medals, caps and shirts went under the hammer at Stacey's auctioneers in Essex today.

Among the items sold was the England shirt he wore in the famous match where he scored all 5 goals in the win over Cyprus at Wembley in 1975.

This shirt appeared on Top of The Pops worn by AC/DC star, Brian Johnson

Another shirt was given by MacDonald to AC/DC star Brian Johnson so he could wear it on Top of the Pops.

Brian later returned the shirt to Malcolm when he discovered Malcolm was living with his ex wife. This shirt raised £1,900.

I'm not one for putting memorabilia on show and a lot of the stuff was just sitting upstairs in the loft.

There are people out there that will get a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction by having it displayed on their walls.
