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?
Sort of, but not really. I was lucky enough to go straight out of university into a job on the sports desk of the now sadly-defunct Irish paper, the Sunday Tribune. And, although they tried to inflict other sports on me that I never had any real interest in, I was always leaning towards football!
