Celebrating the Golden Anniversary of Bobby Moore lifting the Jules Rimet Trophy

2016 sees the 50th anniversary of England winning the world cup with captain Bobby Moore lifting the trophy for the first (and so far) the last time in our history.

As captain of the only England football team ever to win the World Cup, Bobby Moore remains one of the greatest sporting heroes in football. The famous image of Bobby holding the Jules Rimet trophy aloft at Wembley Stadium in 1966 is one that has become ingrained in every football fan’s memory. Bobby played for England 108 times, captained the team in a record 90 matches, won the World Cup, the FA Cup, the European Cup Winners’ Cup and was Footballer of the Year. During a career spanning over two decades, he secured a reputation for being one of the best defenders in the world. Bobby was awarded an OBE in 1967.

Since Bobby died in 1993, almost 300,000 people have lost their lives to bowel cancer in the UK.

Please support Bobby’s legacy and help us tackle bowel cancer.

There will be lots of events marking the 50th anniversary and, as well as my other events next year, I have several to mark this occasion which are listed below.
