Byline: By Bob Dow (Direct OverWrite) See magneto-optic disk.
FOOTBALL hero Drew Jarvie Andrew "Drew" Jarvie (born October 5th 1948 in Annathill, North Lanarkshire, Scotland) is a former Scottish footballer known mostly for his time with club team Aberdeen F.C. is recovering from a life-saving heart op.
Surgeons repaired a valve in the Aberdeen legend's heart. They had feared they would have to replace the valve but were able to fix the damage.
Drew, 60, was recovering last night in the high dependency unit at the Golden Jubilee jubilee (j`bĭlē), in the Bible, a year when alienated property and land were restored, slaves were manumitted, debts were forgiven, and a general sabbatical year was observed in National Hospital near Clydebank.
Wife Janette said he could be allowed home next week.
She added: "He's doing really well and he'll be delighted to hear everyone is asking for him. We knew he would need the operation - that's it done now."
Drew formed a legendary Dons striking partnership with Joe Harper in the 70s and scored 137 goals in 386 games over 10 years.
A club spokesman said: "We are delighted Drew's op went well. We look forward to seeing him back at Pittodrie soon."
