Passed away yesterday aged 85, A 1966 World Cup Winner and a very hard player to counter at corners.
I had him as a celebrity guest on my football quiz team in Germany in the early 1980's ( Sponsored by Rothmans) and he was a real pleasure to talk to.

Wolves fans used to chant: "Where did you get that neck?" when he came up for corners against us in the 1960's and 1970's. He was also allegedly a very keen angler.

Tight Lines, Jack, R.I.P.

I never realised how tall he was until I saw a pic of him in one of his obituarys.

Granted he was stood next to Alan Ball at the time but even so he was literaly head and shoulders above the other players.

He was a big non nonsense basterd - I bet he and Mick McCarthy got on :)

RIP big Jack.
