For 10 years Gordon Banks was not only England’s Number One, but the best keeper in the world - perhaps the best there’s ever been.

He helped lead England to legendary World Cup victory, and his iconic save from Pele will go down in history as one of the greatest ever made. But with the countless triumphs there also came tragedy; just months after being named footballer of the year his career was abruptly cut short when a car accident left him blind in one eye.

This is more than just a football story: it’s the story of a man who represents all that was admirable about the game in a golden era.

A story of a genuine English hero and a stirring, insider account of the England team’s finest years.

’An all-time great’ Gareth Southgate

’He was a true legend of the game’ Harry Redknapp

Gordon Banks OBE was born in Sheffield in 1937. He made a record breaking 73 appearances for England and was a member of the team that won the World Cup in 1966. He passed away in 2019.
