Shirts Of '66 Series 1 (6 Episodes)
July 2006
UKTV

UKTV, has just completed a six part series where Ricky Tomlinson (aka Jim Royle and Mike Bassett) looks for the whereabouts of the shirts that the 1966 team wore in the World Cup final. All 10 living players are individually interviewed,and most of the shirts are located.

The programme also reviews the '66 competition with the players, which is worthy of watching aside from the diversion of looking for the shirts, but actually the shirt hunt does throw up some great stories that I've never heard before in relation to the team.

The personal highlight for me was the interview with '66 squad player, and non-finalist, Ian Callaghan (Liverpool), who said it was him who had Nobby Stiles (Man U) teeth in his pocket and couldn't get to him before the celebrations began. He would have made history so much duller if he had!

Sir Bobby Charlton sounded almost upset that his shirt had been thrown away by Uwe Seeler (Hamburger SV) at the end of his career. Made all the more upsetting by the fact that he had looked after Uwe's so carefully!

The programme seemed to be responsible for turning up George Cohen's shirt, which was a bit moth-eaten and had been in a box in Lothar Emmerich's loft. Lother died in 2003, so his son showed the shirt as if he were showing us one of his Dad's old bottle top collection. He looked shocked when he found out how much it is worth and the next time we see it is in the Christies showroom!

The programme also showcased Stan Boardman's xenophobic/humourously ironic (depending on your perspective) World Cup single, in which he sings the line 'Aye,aye yippy, da Jeer-mans bombed our chippy' to the tune of She'll be Coming Around the Mountains. I noticed Stan was one of the programme's exectutive producers, but more impressively than any of this, Stan owns a World Cup shirt itself. It was one of Alan Ball's white ones, and thus wasn't worn in the final.

He had been given to him by Alan Ball Senior (Preston North End manager) - who was also responsible for Alan Ball himself losing Nobby Stiles shirt (Alan and Nobby having swapped with each other on the day). He'd lent it to a local TV hire shop in exchange for a colour telly, but never claimed it back!


It is not the first time the heroes of 1966 have been reunited.

But this time there were a few extra reasons for nostalgia.

Eight surviving members of the England World Cup winning squad met up at the Hendon Hall Hotel near Wembley, the same one they used during the tournament 40 years ago.

The last time they were there together was the night before the biggest game in their careers.

This time they spent a more relaxed evening catching up over a few drinks and debating the merits of the current England squad.

They were brought together to promote a television show which features comedian Ricky Tomlinson embarking on a mission to track down the iconic shirts worn on that famous day.

He manages to trace most of them and the players are brought up to date with their whereabouts.

Missing from the line-up were Sir Bobby Charlton and Ray Wilson, who had prior engagements. And as the players posed in the shadow of the new Wembley Stadium, a vacant seat was adorned with the number 6 shirt as a tribute to Bobby Moore, who died in 1993.

Right back George Cohen was one of the lucky few reunited with his shirt. "It was very emotional," he said. "I hadn't seen it since the end of the game when I swapped it with a German player who has since died but passed it on to his son."

The Shirts of 66 starts on June 4 on UKTV Gold. Here is a brief rundown of the players and their lives after football.
