Merseyside Parades the World Cup Trophy! Plus the League Championship and the FA Cup…

Roger Hunt of Liverpool and Ray Wilson of Everton show off the Jules Rimet trophy in 1966

Our latest Great Shot naturally had to have a World Cup theme, so we dug up this one from August 13th 1966. The Charity Shield saw Everton play Liverpool at Goodison Park. This Merseyside derby followed England’s World Cup success and was a pre-match silverware walk.

Liverpool walked the League Championship trophy around Goodison (which must have been quite weird), and then Everton walked the FA Cup around the ground before England heroes Roger Hunt of Liverpool and Ray Wilson of Everton carried the Jules Rimet trophy jointly – in what must be the most silverware-laiden lap of honour ever seen in British football.

Liverpool went on to win the match 1-0 with a goal from Hunt in front of 63,329.
