Sir Bobby Charlton, CBE (1937-2023)

An image of Sir Bobby Charlton playing for England

West Bromwich Albion will pay tribute to England great Sir Bobby Charlton with a minute’s applause prior to the Sky Bet Championship fixture against Queens Park Rangers at The Hawthorns on Tuesday night (ko 8pm).

The 1966 World Cup winner passed away on Saturday at the age of 86, and the Baggies will join clubs across the football community in wearing black armbands as a mark of respect. 

Charlton scored 49 goals in 106 appearances for England, also earning three league titles, an FA Cup and a European Cup during a glittering domestic career with Manchester United.

He will be remembered as a giant of the English game and, having won the 1966 Ballon D’or, is widely considered one of the greatest players of all time.

The thoughts of all at The Hawthorns remain with the Charlton family and everyone effected by his sad passing.
