WORLD CUP winner Nobby Stiles met soccer fans at the opening of Waterstone's bookshop in Huddersfield's Kingsgate Centre.
Nobby, a member of the legendary 1966 England soccer squad, signed copies of his new autobiography, After the Ball, on Saturday.
He was joined by other VIP guests, including local author Gervase Phinn and children's writer GP Taylor.

GP Taylor officially unveiled the large children's section and met young bookworms.
To give the opening a party feel there were musicians, face painters, balloon modellers and a chance to meet Dr Seuss's madcap creation, the Cat In The Hat.
