Sir Geoff Hurst comes to Queen’s Hall as part of his final farewell tour to talk amusingly about his illustrious West Ham and England career.

Sir Geoff made his name with club side West Ham United, with whom he made 499 league and cup appearances, scoring 248 goals. He was Player of the Year three times and won the F.A Cup with West Ham in 1964 and the European cup winners cup in 1965.

However, it was playing in the national side that launched Sir Geoff as a world football icon-not only as being part of the England team that won the World Cup in 1966 but also scoring a hat trick in that final. Hence Kenneth Wolstenholme´s immortal words “They think its all over…it is now”.

In the Autumn of 1998, the BBC announced that the England fourth goal with Kenneth uttering those immortal words, has been the most shown sporting piece of footage ever seen on television.

After leaving West Ham, Sir Geoff then played for Stoke City with 100 appearances and 30 goals, then West Bromwich Albion for 1 year. He then became player-manager for Telford and also had spells playing in America and Kuwait.

He went on to become the assistant coach to the England National team under Ron Greenwood from 1977 to 1982, and then became the manager of Chelsea for 2 years.

The night will conclude with a Q&A session.
