A 1966 World Cup Story

“One of the most loved stories about England’s 1966 World Cup victory is about how Bob Charlton, Jackie and Bobby’s father, worked his shift that same afternoon.

While his sons were sharing England’s greatest sporting triumph 300 miles away at Wembley Stadium….Bob was cutting coal at Linton Colliery.”
