one of the all time greats...

"England's 1966 World Cup-winning goalkeeper Gordon Banks has died aged 81.

Regarded as one of the game's greatest in his position, Banks was named Fifa goalkeeper of the year six times and earned 73 caps for England.

He is perhaps best known for his wonder save from Pele during the 1970 World Cup against Brazil.

Born in Sheffield, he won the League Cup with Stoke and Leicester, before retiring in 1973.

"It is with great sadness that we announce that Gordon passed away peacefully overnight," his family said."

RIP Gordon Banks.

We used to send our son to footie school in the summer holidays. Gordon Banks was a guest one day, he stood in goal and let the kids take a turn in trying to get one past him. He generously allowed our son to get one in, obviously son was over the moon.
What a lovely man he was. x
