Bobby Moore - a football icon

Robert Frederick Chelsea Moore was born on 12 April 1941 in Barking, Essex.

He played for West Ham United and Fulham FC and led England to World Cup victory in 1966.Bobby Moore holding the World Cup

As captain of the only England football team ever to win the World Cup, Bobby Moore remains one of the greatest sporting heroes in football.

The famous image of Bobby holding the Jules Rimet trophy aloft at Wembley Stadium in 1966 is one that has become ingrained in every football fan's memory.

Bobby played for England 108 times, captained the team in a record 90 matches, won the World Cup, the FA Cup, the European Cup Winners' Cup and was Footballer of the Year.

During a career spanning over two decades, he secured a reputation for being one of the best defenders in the world.

Bobby was awarded an OBE in 1967.

Since Bobby died in 1993, almost 300,000 people have lost their lives to bowel cancer in the UK. Please support Bobby's legacy and help us tackle bowel cancer. There are many ways you can get involved, from joining an event or becoming a partner to making a donation.
