Gordon Banks RIP

We at the FWA join the rest of the football world in mouring the death of Gordon Banks, our former Footballer of the Year, who has passed away at the age of 81.

Banksy, or the Banks of England as he was nicknamed, will always have a special place in football history as England's goalkeeper when Sir Alf Ramsey's side won the World Cup in 1966, but arguably his most famous save came four years later, at the 1970 World Cup finals.
