Gaffer's sadness at legend's passing

 

Head Coach Kenny Jackett has paid tribute to Wolves legend Bert Williams, who passed away on Sunday morning at the age of 93.

Bert was both a Wolves and England legend, who made 420 appearances whilst at Molineux and won 24 caps for his country, including appearing in the 1950 World Cup Finals.

“It was very sad to hear the news yesterday and my thoughts and condolences go to all of Bert’s family,” said Kenny.

 

“He was a big player in Wolves’ history and also someone who kept a real interest in the club and remained in close contact with several of our goalkeepers who are still around now.

“When you look at his record both for Wolves and England – of appearances, of trophies won and international caps – then you see what a fantastic career that he enjoyed.

“He brought so much to Wolves as both a player and as a person and I am sure the fans will want to give him a fitting tribute on Saturday.”
