Ramon 'Ray' Wilson has been voted the greatest Huddersfield Town player ever by you, the fans.

We asked our readers to name their all-time club great, based on a five-man shortlist which contained some strong candidates.

The votes duly flooded in, with Wilson dominating the voting by taking 36 per cent of the votes from the Town fanbase.

And given his exploits on the international stage, you can hardly begrudge Wilson of the title.

Having initially started out as an apprentice railwayman, Wilson' upbringing was a grounded one but he was soon elevated to a far loftier status as Town snapped him up at the age of 18.

Having established himself as one of the best left-backs of his time, he was rewarded five years after making his club debut with an international call-up in a 1-1 draw with Scotland.

England captain Bobby Moore holds aloft the Jules Rimet trophy as he sits on the shoulders of his teammates Geoff Hurst and former Huddersfield Town full-back Ray Wilson.
 

He was famed for his buccaneering runs from a left-back station and England manager Walter Winterbottom was keen to utilise these at international level, with Wilson playing a key role in his nation's 1962 World Cup campaign as England reached the quarter-finals.

Wilson went not one, not two, but three better in 1966 by helping the Three Lions to their first and, to this date only, World Cup win albeit once he had joined Everton from Town.

In our poll Wilson edged out second-placed Andy Booth, who boasted a commendable 30 per cent of the vote in a close-run thing.

Billy Smith was in third place with 24 per cent of fans voting for the man who made more starts than any other player in the club's history.

In fourth place was Malcolm Brown (six per cent), with George Brown coming fifth (four per cent).

Although Booth featured highly in Town fans' thinking, the selection of Wilson makes it clear that the history of the club resonates with just about every Town supporter and it is clear the memories of Wilson are fond ones.
