Born in Lanarkshire, in 1924, the imposing Scottish international arrived at Gallowgate in 1946.

Authoritative, tough and cool-headed, he quickly became a terrace favorite at St James’ Park, earning the nickname “Rock of Tyneside”.

At 6’3” and 14 stone, Brennan was speedy for a big man, and often came out on top in his battles with big-name centre-forwards of the era like Tommy Lawton, Stan Mortensen, Nat Lofthouse, Trevor Ford.

Nat Lofthouse wrote:
"Big Frank, that man-mountain who oozes geniality and sportsmanship, is the kind of gentleman who does our great game so much good. If Frank puts you down in a shoulder charge he is always the first to give you a helping hand to your feet."
