On 8th May 1990, defender Steve Morrow made his debut for his national side, Northern Ireland, in which they won by a solitary goal against South American giants Uruguay, according to the Official Arsenal website.
Born as Stephen Joseph Morrow, ‘Steve’ started his professional career as a youth player for Bangor in the Northern Ireland Football League Championship 1. During the 10 years he spent at the club between 1987 and 1997, according to Arsenal.com, the utility player is best remembered for a ridiculous accident after the 1993 League Cup Final against Sheffield United.
In a match that saw three goals scored, United’s John Harkes opened the scoring in the 8th minute of the match before Paul Merson levelled the score 12 minutes later. Soon after Morrow netted the winner at Wembley, he fell off from Tony Adams’ shoulder during the parade around the pitch, consequently breaking his arms.
In total he made 85 appearances for Arsenal, scoring 3 goals. What more could you ask from a utility player?
