Gordon Banks is the greatest English goalkeeper of all time.

A member of the team that won the 1966 World Cup, he will forever be remembered for a stunning save from Brazil's Pele in the 1970 tournament in Mexico.

Gordon joined Chesterfield as an amateur from local junior football, signing professional forms after completing his National Service.

He established his reputation as a highly promising youngster in the Spireites team that was narrowly defeated by Manchester United in the 1956 FA Youth Cup final and in May 1959 he was sold to Leicester City.

He soon became first choice at Filbert Street and made his debut for England against Scotland in April 1963.

Relatively, his success at club level did not reflect his genius. The Foxes reached the FA Cup final in 1961 and 1963 but their only triumph was in the League Cup in 1964.

Despite being a regular for his country, Gordon was sold to Stoke City for £50,000 in April 1967 to allow another talented 'keeper, Peter Shilton, to come through.

He helped the Potteries club win the League Cup in 1972 (their only major trophy), when he was also voted Footballer of the Year, but in October of that year he lost the sight of one eye in a car crash and this effectively ended his senior career.

He subsequently had spells coaching at Stoke and Port Vale and was also manager of non-league Telford United for a while before forging a career in corporate hospitality.

Gordon made a total of 510 Football League appearances and won 73 caps for England.

He was awarded the OBE in 1970.
