With 321 appearances and 220 goals under his belt (1961 – 1970) Jimmy was one of England’s best EVER goal scorers.
Did you ever see Jimmy play in the flesh?
Over 12 months ago Jimmy suffered a stroke which nearly killed him – sadly he’ll never walk again.
‘I remain in a wheelchair and it’s now likely I will stay this way for the rest of my life,’ said Jimmy talking to the press following his stroke.
‘The doctors have told me I won’t walk again and that I will always need ongoing care.
‘It was devastating to hear them say that but I will never stop trying to get better – and the main thing is that I’m still here fighting all the way.’
Our thoughts are with you Jimmy.
