Ray Wilson, a member of England’s World Cup-winning side, has died, aged 83.

At 32, the Derbyshire-born left-back was the oldest player in Alf Ramsey’s starting XI which overcame West Germany 4-2 in the 1966 final at Wembley.

He spent most of his club career at Huddersfield Town before moving to Everton where he helped the Toffees win the 1966 FA Cup.

Wilson, who also played for Oldham and Bradford City, had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
