Ray Wilson RIPThe FWA sends condolences to family, friends and fans of Ray Wilson, the former Huddersfield and Everton full-back who won the World Cup with England in 1966 and has passed away at the age of 83.
Wilson was an unsung hero on Sir Alf Ramsey's side that beat West Germany at Wembley to lift the World Cup, for which he was later awarded an MBE. He was a tenacious left-back with Huddersfield Town and Everton, who both posted messages of condolence.

Have you ever worked in a profession other than football?
I worked in a pub in the Old Swan area of Liverpool. If the acts booked for the evening’s entertainment didn't end their set with 'The Best' by Tina Turner there was a riot. Used to be quite tricky for the Irish Revolutionary Ceilidh bands to learn the words.
