† Appearances (Goals).

Wilfred ("Wilf") James Mannion (16 May 1918 - 14 April 2000) was an English professional footballer who played as an inside forward, making over 350 senior appearances for Middlesbrough. He also played international football for England. With his blond hair, he was nicknamed "The Golden Boy".

Early life

Mannion was born on 16 May 1918 in South Bank, the son of Irish immigrants Tommy and Mary Mannion, and one of 10 children.

Middlesbrough

He joined his local team Middlesbrough F.C. in 1936 and went on to make 341 Football League appearances for them, scoring on 99 occasions.

Mannion fought in France and Italy during World War II, and on his return he wanted to leave Ayresome Park, but the club refused to sell him. In 1948 he went on strike to try and force a move, but this made him ineligible to play for England, and he eventually backed down and started playing for Middlesbrough again.

England International

He was capped on 26 occasions by the England national football team between 1946 and 1951, and his final appearance came on 3 October 1951.[6] He was a member of the England squad for the 1950 FIFA World Cup.

Later career

After initially retiring as a player in 1954, Mannion subsequently joined Hull City. However, the Football League suspended him for articles he had written, and he left to play non-league football with Poole Town.[5] He also had an unsuccessful spell as manager of Cambridge United.

After football

He was eventually awarded a testimonial match by Middlesbrough in 1983, alongside former Boro and England colleague George Hardwick.

Mannion died on 14 April 2000 at the age of 81.

In 2004 it was announced he was being inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame at the National Football Museum.
