Gordon Banks OBE

We’re remembering England World Cup legend Gordon Banks as his funeral takes place today.

Gordon was good enough to support a number of the Club’s fundraising events and in 2016 joined us for a dinner at Molineux celebrating the 50th Anniversary of that great World Cup win in 1966 and which raised funds in aid of former Wolverhampton Wanderers FC keeper Bert Williams’ Alzheimer’s Appeal and other Rotary charities.

The event was one of Gordon’s first public appearances after revealing that he was once again fighting renal cancer and the way in which he continued to support others whilst fighting the disease was a mark of the character of the man.
