FIVE members of England’s 1966 World Cup winning team, including former Huddersfield Town star Ray Wilson, will be reunited in Huddersfield in April.

Gordon Banks, George Cohen, Jack Charlton and Nobby Stiles will also be at the black-tie dinner at the Galpharm Stadium.

The Friday, April 27 event, which includes a comedian and will be compered by popular Malcolm Lord, is being staged by Wayne Carmichael Promotions.

“It’s relatively rare for so many of the players to get together these days, and it’s great to have our own Huddersfield hero Ray Wilson there,” said Carmichael.

“We’ll be staging a question- and-answer session as well as a raffle and auction of memorabilia, and of course there will be a chance to get autographs.”

Alan Ball, Bobby Charlton, Roger Hunt, Geoff Hurst, Bobby Moore and Martin Peters were the other members of the side who beat West Germany 4-2 at Wembley.

Left-back Wilson was with Everton by the time of the final but made 283 appearances for Town between 1955 and 1964, when he moved to Goodison in a £40,000 deal.
