Hurst auction

Sir Geoff Hurst has put his spare
1966 World Cup final shirt up for sale.

England’s hat-trick hero sold the
original shirt he wore in the 4-2 win over West Germany for $120,000 at a
Christie’s auction in 2000.

Now his red, long-sleeved back-up
shirt will go under the hammer at Bonhams in Chester on 16 June with a sale
estimate of between $10,000 to $12,000.

Sir Geoff – who visited Grand
Cayman two years ago – remains the only player to have scored three times in a
World Cup final.

Among other items he has sold at
auction in the past is a blue World Cup 1966 international cap which went for
$55,000 at the same Christie’s auction as his original shirt.

Also up for grabs is a pair of
boots worn by another England legend, Stanley Matthews.

Matthews used them to play in his
testimonial match in April 1965, two months after he’d retired from the
first-class game.
