Bambrick scored a magnificent 12 goals in 11 games for Ireland (IFA) including six in one game againts Wales. Chided by defeated Welsh goalkeeper afterward for six kick of the ball and you get six goals.

A former gas worker of medium build, he was a prolific goalscorer,adept at getting into good scoring positions and athlete enough to make the final touch count. "Head, heel or toe, Slip it to Joe" became a famous catch phrase when reffering to him. His scoring of 6 goals for Ireland vs Wales at Celtic Park on the 1st February 1930 in a 7-0 win, still remains the record score for a British Isles player in a international fixture.


Glentoran : 22 games/28 goals
Linfield : 183 games/286 goals
Chelsea : 59 games/34 goals
Walsall : 35 games/15 goals

TOTAL : 299 games/364 goals
