The Mail on Sunday - - Talk Of The Town -

ENG­LAND World Cup hero Ray Wil­son, who played in the leg­endary tro­phy­win­ning 1966 team, has left £322,884 in his will.

It is less than a week’s wages for Manch­ester United star Alexis Sanchez who earns more than £20 mil­lion a year as the Premier League’s high­est paid player.

Wil­son, who died aged 83 in May af­ter bat­tling Alzheimer’s, was the left­back in Sir Alf Ram­sey’s team which beat West Ger­many 4-2 in the fi­nal at Wem­b­ley. Play­ing for Hud­der­s­field and Ever­ton, he won 63 Eng­land caps in the Six­ties be­fore re­tir­ing from the game in 1971 and be­com­ing an un­der­taker in Hud­der­s­field. He was made an MBE in 2000.

Pro­bate records re­veal he left his es­tate in trust for his wife Pat and sons Rus­sell and Neil.
