The loss of a football legend: Alan Ball

Posted by Chris Green on Wednesday April 25 @ 9:33 am

I’m at the HP Technology@Work conference this morning and fired up the Slingbox to catch the news. Have just heard the very sad news that Alan Ball, the youngest member of the 1966 World Cup winning squad has passed away after a sudden heart attack.

Very sad indeed, as there are so few of that team still with us. I had the good fortune to meet Alan Ball at a charity football event a few years ago, without doubt one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. Very funny, very friendly, a good commentator and a completely genuine person. He will be missed.
