Throwback Thursday: England Under-21s Tommy Johnson & Mark Draper Help To Defeat Germany

12 June 2014

With the 2014 World Cup set to kick-off on Thursday evening, this week’s Notts County Throwback Thursday looks back at a Three Lions related photograph.

Magpies legends Tommy Johnson and Mark Draper are pictured lining up for England Under-21s, either side of former Nottingham Forest defender Carl Tiler. 

The fixture is believed to be the 10 September 1991 meeting between England Under-21s and Germany Under-21s, which saw Johnson and Draper feature alongside the likes of David James and Alan Shearer.

At Glanford Park, the home of Scunthorpe United, England Under-21s overcame Germany Under-21s 2-1 in front of 6,984 fans, with Johnson finding the net ahead of the break.

The club would like to thank Bowles Associates, JMS Photography, Dan Westwell and the Nottingham Post for supporting the NCFC History archives. 

Look out for more classic photographs every Thursday.
