Remembering Jimmy Armfield: One Year On

Forever In Our Hearts

22 January 2019

Today marks 12 months since Blackpool's record appearance holder and vice-president Jimmy Armfield CBE passed away.

Captain of England and capped 43 times by his country, he made 627 appearances for Blackpool, won the Young Player of the Year award in 1959 and was named Best Right-Back in the World at the 1962 World Cup in Chile.

An ambassador for the Fylde Coast and numerous charities, Jimmy is so deeply missed by all who had the honour of meeting him.

Our thoughts today are with the Armfield family.
