If you’ve been following this site since (before) the very beginning, you might remember that for prices beginning at £50 one can now commemorate, consumate and celebrate one’s love for the old place with a personalised paving stone.
One of the first to lay a stone on Wembley Way was Geoff Hurst (Sir Geoff Hurst as he’s known by people who buy into that sort of thing), and we love a photo of a World Cup winner here at The Stiles Council. So here he is, replete with paving stone and the statue of a certain someone in the background:
I actually met Sir Geoff for a work assignment just before the last World Cup and spent a good few hours in his company as a string of football writers and bloggers worked their way through some fascinating interviews, and took the opportunity to ask him some questions myself. (I focused on his brief time with Seattle Sounders in the North American Soccer League because I’m weird like that.) You couldn’t hope to meet a nicer ex-pro, let alone one who achieved what he did.
