Final Word

Bert sits at his desk wearing his England versus Portugal cap which still fits,
looking at the first proof of his book

Bert final words were, “I hope that some of you will still remember me”.

Well Bert I will never forget you and December 13th 1954 is still etched in my memory when you performed miracles between the posts in the green jersey, thank you my friend for memories that never seem to fade, you were THE GREATEST who epitomised everything that was good in the beautiful game.
