Sir Bob was at St George’s Park on 5th October for a special road naming ceremony.
In this 50th anniversary year since England’s 1966 World Cup victory, the FA is renaming the main road into St George’s Park after Sir Alf Ramsey.
FA Chairman, Greg Clarke hosted the naming ceremony to unveil the special road name which was followed by a lunch at the Hilton with many of the players and families of the 1966 squad in attendance. Following the lunch, the 1966 guests were taken on a short tour of the elite facilities.
“It was very apt and an honour to be rubbing shoulders with members of our 1966 team at St George’s Park. These players achieved the greatest feat in football without the elite training facilities players of today now enjoy – and we all hope we can emulate their historic achievement and success again in the future.”
Sir Bob was the Project Director for the development of St George’s Park and remains a property advisor to the FA and Wembley.
