Bobby Moore was the man at the centre of England's greatest international success, defeating West Germany to the 1966 FIFA World Cup at Wembley Stadium. He was awarded the coveted BBC Sports Personality of the Year title at the end of 1966, the first footballer ever. After 500-plus games with West Ham United and a further 100-plus at Fulham, Moore had short stints playing in the USA and Denmark.

 

In 1981, after allegedly falling on hard times, Moore made his way to Australia. His 40-year-old legs saw him turn out for Inglewood Kiev in Perth, Western Australia, playing two games. He went on to play one game for Rockingham City and four games in just over a week for Cracovia on their tour of Malaysia.

 

Moore may have only won one game out of seven, but the Hammers and England legend will always be remembered by those who watched him play in WA.
