  • Other Information

Wyn was the archetypal target man. He was revered at Newcastle for his wholehearted performances, and with his superb arial skills and abilities he earned the nickname "Wyn the Leap". He was a leading figure in Newcastle's Inter Cities Fairs Cup success in 1969.

After leaving Newcastle for Manchester City, where he spent a year, Frank O'Farrell took him to Manchester United, but the subsequent appointment of Tommy Docherty saw Wyn on the move again, to Blackpool and then Stockport.
