Sir Geoff Hurst M.B.E, retains a unique place in the history of sport. As the only man to have scored a hat-trick of goals in the FIFA World Cup Final, he is, nearly half a century after the event, an iconic figure in global sport.

Revered by young and old alike, he represents a glorious era in English football. “It’s gratifying to meet people today who still want to share their memories of something that happened all those years ago,” he says.

However, it was playing in the national side that launched Sir Geoff as a world football icon – not only as being part of theEnglandteam that won the World Cup in 1966 but also scoring a hat trick in that final. Hence Kenneth Wolstenholme ‘s immortal words:

“They think it’s all over — it is now”.

In the autumn of 1998,the BBC announced that the England fourth goal (Sir Geoff’s third) with Kenneth uttering those immortal words, has been the most shown/popular sporting piece of footage ever seen on the T.V. It has probably been shown more times than any other sporting footage.

Sir Geoff made his name with club side West Ham United, with whom he played 499 league and cup appearances, scoring 248 goals. He was Player of the Year three times and won the F.A. Cup with West Ham in 1964 and the European Cup Winners Cup in 1965.

After leaving West Ham, Sir Geoff then played for Stoke City with 100 appearances & 30 goals and then West Bromwich Albion for one year. Then he was player/ manager for Telford and also had a spell playing in America and Kuwait.

He became the assistant coach to the England National Team under Ron Greenwood from 1977 to 1982, and then became the manager of Chelsea for two years.

Sir Geoff has undertaken a large number of speaking engagements across the world for many companies, including Proctor and Gamble, Toyota, The World Sponsorship Council, Lloyds Bank.
