RAY WILSON M.B.E.
Ray Wilson is perhaps best remembered for his significant contributions in helping England win the World Cup in 1966. His numerous apperances, both in League football and at an International level, confirmed his place in history as one of the game's most gifted players.
Wilson was born in Shirebrook, Derbyshire in 1934 and began his football career playing with Langwith Boys Club and Langwith Junction Imps. In May 1952, he joined Huddersfield Town working as a member of their ground staff and turned professional with the club the following August. It was here that under the guidance of Bill Shankly he made an excess of 250 League appearances for the club and played for England on many occassions, before joining Everton in 1964 [£25,000 and another player]. He made over 150 appearances for the club and helped to bring the F.A. Cup to Everton in 1966. He also played for the Merseyside team in the F.A. Cup final in 1968.
1966 was a good year for Wilson, both at club and international level, with the small matter of the World Cup tournament being held on home soil. His outstanding performances for England during the games played at Wembley confirmed his position as one of the World's most gifted full-backs. After suffering a knee injury in 1969, Wilson signed for Oldham Athletic before becoming player/coach for Bradford City in 1970. In 1971 he retired as a player but continued to work as the team's assistant manager until the end of that season.

Everton, who came into this match as clear favourites having not conceded a goal in seven matches, found themselves one down after only four minutes after a Jim McCalliog deflected shot. They went further behind shortly after a Dave Ford goal in the second half. But Trebilcock (who was a surprise replacement for top scorer, Fred Pickering) scored with a half-volley a minute later to make the score 2-1. With 30 minutes remaining, Wednesday committed the first of two defensive errors which would eventually cost them the F.A. Cup final. A poor headed clearance fell to Trebilcock and he scored his second and Everton's equaliser. The dramatic winner came from Temple, the left-winger, after a Wednesday defender failed to control a harmless punt and left Temple with a clear run in on goal, giving Everton a 3-2 victory
