Martin Peters - World Cup Winner 1966

In a week when I see a brainless British sporting media describe yet another football mortal as a legend, a real 100% genuine legend passed away ravished by the horrible illness that is Alzheimer's. Ironic really, because throughout the whole of his football career, Martin Peters had one of the sharpest minds in English football, He undoubtably changed the face of the creative, goal scoring midfielder and he remains to this day one of only two Englishmen to score in a World Cup Final. Him and Alan Ball provided the width and balance to Ramsey's wingless wonders and was one of the main reasons we won the tournament in '66. As a young Manchester United fan I was distraught when he chose Spurs over us when he left the Hammers but I still loved watching him. My sympathies with his many family members and friends at this sad time. Rest in piece, to a fine gentlemen, Martin Peters RIP.

Was lucky to see him play at the Bowlyn Ground on a few Saturday afternoons when in the Royal Docks.
A clerk in SSA dock office had a supply of tickets for little over face value. Can't remember the cost but they were not expensive.
Really lucky to have seen him play in his prime. RIP

Most people associated Martin with West Ham and Spurs and of course England but he actually played 232 games for Norwich from 75- 80 and was much loved in Norfolk.
RIP

question?? for all was there a martin peters in the 50's 60's who was a marathon runner for England, and in the Vancouver games of the Commonwealth, collapsed at or just before the finishing line, and so never finished the race. At the time he was the front runner but never crossed the line, and was his name also Martin Peters?
Memory plays many a trick>?

I don't know much about Martin Peters as a person, but I do remember him as a superb player.
