England World Cup winner Ray Wilson dies, aged 83

Former Huddersfield Town and Everton defender Ray Wilson, who played a part in England's World Cup-winning campaign, dies at the age of 83 after battling Alzheimer's.

Former England left-back Ray Wilson, a member of the World Cup-winning side of 1966, has died at the age of 83.

Wilson, who suffered from Alzheimer's disease, was the oldest member of Sir Alf Ramsey's starting lineup for the 4-2 win over West Germany in the final at Wembley Stadium.

The Derbyshire-born defender spent the majority of his club career at Huddersfield Town, making 266 league appearances for the Terriers, while also representing Oldham Athletic, Bradford City and Everton, where he won the FA Cup in the same year as England's most famous triumph.

A statement from Huddersfield read: "He was a regular supporter at home match days alongside his eldest son Russell despite battling Alzheimer's disease."

Everton and Huddersfield celebrated Wilson's career during their meeting at the John Smith's Stadium on April 28.
