VALE Sir Bobby Charlton CBE (1937 – 2023)

Blacktown City FC honours the passing of Bobby Charlton at the age of 86. Widely considered one of the greatest players of all time, he was a member of the England team that won the 1966 FIFA World Cup, the year he also won the Ballon d’Or. Charlton played almost all of his club football at Manchester United, where he became renowned for his attacking instincts, passing abilities from midfield, ferocious long-range shot, fitness, and stamina. Charlton enjoyed great success at club level with United, who became the first English club to win the European Cup in 1968.

Charlton had a connection with Blacktown City FC, having played one game for BCFC on March 9th 1980, scoring a goal in his last ever professional match.

Charlton passed away after a battle with dementia just a week after celebrating his birthday.
