Former England footballer and World Cup winner Ray Wilson dies aged 83

The former Huddersfield Town and Everton player died at The Bell House care home in Huddersfield, the clubs said.

 

He was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2004 and died on Tuesday night.

"Ray is arguably the most successful and best-known player ever to pull on a Huddersfield Town shirt, having been a key member of England's World Cup-winning team in 1966," Huddersfield Town FC said in a statement.

The club said it was "devastated" to learn of his passing and said its thoughts were with his wife Pat and his sons Russ and Neil.
