Saturday 9th February 2019 would have marked the 61st birthday of former Wolves and England star Cyrille Regis.
The legendary striker, who was one of the few players that was held in high regard by football fans from every corner of the Midlands, passed away unexpectedly in January 2018.
During his playing career, Cyrille enjoyed long spells with West Bromwich Albion and Coventry City before moves to both Aston Villa and Wolves, while also representing Wycombe Wanderers and Chester.
Over the last few months, his family have been preparing for the forthcoming launch of the Cyrille Regis Legacy Trust, which aims to provide a fitting and permanent tribute to the player.
Cyrille’s brother Dave Regis, the former Stoke and Notts County footballer, said: “We are pleased to announce that members of the Regis family have set up a charity to continue Cyrille’s legacy and impact in football and the community.
“The Cyrille Regis Legacy Trust will be launched with an exciting project in partnership with the foundations of six leading West Midlands clubs, West Bromwich Albion, Coventry City, Aston Villa, Wolves, Birmingham City and Walsall, and will be a wonderful tribute to Cyrille and more importantly, influence the lives of local young people.
“We look forward to sharing more with you in the coming weeks. Watch this space.”
