Über das Objekt

Ray Wilson's England 1966 World Cup winner's medal,\n.750 continental gold by Peka, inscribed F.I.F.A., WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, WINNERS, JULES RIMET CUP, IN ENGLAND, 1966, RAY WILSON, in replacement case\n\nProvenance:\nBought at Christie's 27th March 2002, lot 70.\n\nRay Wilson was born at Shirebrook, Derbyshire, 17th December 1934.\n\nHis skills as a left-back were first spotted by a scout at Huddersfield Town and Wilson signed professional forms at the Yorkshire club in 1952. He made his first-team debut after his National Service v Manchester United in 1955. Ray Wilson made a total of 266 League appearances for Huddersfield, including during the management spell of Bill Shankly, and had been capped 30 times for England - a record for Huddersfield Town - by the time Everton secured his services in 1964.\n\nA torn muscle, however, meant that he missed most of the 1964-65 season at Everton. By comparison 1965-66 proved to be the high watermark of his career. Having secured a F.A. Cup winner's medal at Wembley, when Everton beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-2, Wilson was selected by Alf Ramsey for the England's 1966 World Cup squad.\n\nUndoubtedly Ramsey's first-choice for the No.3 shirt, Ray Wilson played in all six games during England's 1966 World Cup winning campaign. The semi-final v Portugal marked Wilson's 50th international cap and at 32 Ray Wilson was the oldest member of the team that beat West Germany 4-2 (aet) in the final on 30th July.\n.\nPost-World Cup, Alf Ramsey continued to select Wilson as England progressed through the qualification process for the 1968 European Championships, ultimately going out in the semi-finals and finishing third overall. Wilson's 63rd and final England cap came in the third-place play-off against USSR.\n\nAt club level, Wilson appeared at another F.A. Cup final in 1968 this time on a losing Everton side to West Bromwich Albion. Injuries began to take their toll and he was granted a free transfer by Everton in 1969. After a season at Oldham and then at Bradford City, he retired in 1971 following a brief spell as caretaker manager.\n\nRay Wilson then left the world of football completely and built up a successful undertaker's business in Huddersfield. He lives in Slaithwaite near Huddersfield with his wife Pat. They have two children.
