Another 1966 hero and scorer departs the pitch. RIP Martin

Another victim of Alzheimer’s.

What sticks in the mind apart from his goal at Wemberlee? Alf Ramsey describing him as “ten years ahead of his time”.

My memory is of a player with a super football brain and immaculate positional sense. Never seemed in a hurry.

Exactly what I remembered - so he was 86 rather than 76. There's only Geoff Hurst who can top him in Englands' World Cup history - so far.

RIP Martin Peters

He was known for ghosting in from nowhere to score.One of a few players of that era that wouldn't look out of place today.

RIP

A proper football legend, I was only six when he scored in the world cup final.

I can't remember watching it at the time (no surprise) but apparently I did.

RIP Martin Peters.

Think he did in 65. We played the Hammers in the league Cup.

He sure did

https://www.11v11.com/matches/grimsby-town-v-west-ham-united-17-november-1965-28658/

I can vaguely recall this game as a little kid going with my dad.... didn't realise the significance of course just going in the boys paddock

I saw his obituary in The Guardian yesterday.... a good read and a fitting tribute to him ( despite what anyone's political views are )

Yes he played and like his team was outplayed by a great Town team which should have won. Nevertheless a great player. Later that year I saw him have a brilliant game against Notts Forest. Superb.

Interesting if you go down that West Ham team sheet though to see how many of them were (relatively) local to the club.

I'll never forget this game The great trio of Hurst Peters and Moore were still 6 months away from World Cup glory so didn't really mean that much to me but West Ham were not only Div 1 but the European Cup Winners Cup holders.

What I remember most about that great night, packed crowd, floodlights but above all that Matt Tees header past Jim Standen



Well I did try to tell you all Jolley was a mistake

Just looked at that Swin and you're right, all from the Greater London area ( or Essex which is still within spitting distance )  bar one.... Geoff Hurst ( who moved from Manchester to Essex when he was just six )
