The dust may have settled on England’s hopes of lifting the World Cup, but one man who had a firm grip on the Jules Rimet trophy will be in Blackpool tonight.

Goalkeeping legend Gordon Banks will be attending a dinner at Blackpool North Shore Golf Club. The dinner follows a football and golf fun day at the club. Banks was a member of England’s 1966 World Cup winning team, the pinnacle of a glorious career which saw him earn 73 international caps and play 558 league games, the majority for Leicester City and Stoke City.

Tables are still available for the dinner and can be bought for £40 from the club.
