FOOTBALL legend Sir Bobby Charlton will be signing copies of the latest volume of his autobiography, My England Years, at the Cheshire Oaks Borders store from 12.30pm on Monday, September 22.
Sir Bobby is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest players ever to wear an England shirt.
He won a record number of caps and scored a record number of goals.
In the second volume of his best-selling autobiography, Sir Bobby talks in detail about his phenomenal career with England.
During the years he played for his country, he was involved in some of the greatest England games of all time, such as the 9-3 thrashing of Scotland, the 1962 and 1970 World Cup games against Brazil and the triumph of the 1966 World Cup.
For the first time, Sir Bobby talks openly about his international career and his views on the game.
From breaking into the squad at 21, to the highs of ’66 and the lows of ’70, his story encompasses drama, passion, goals, controversies, classic matches, world-class players, and moments of footballing genius.
Born in Ashington, Northumberland in 1937, Sir Bobby joined Manchester United as a professional in 1954 and made his first team debut in October, 1956.
He was voted European Player of the Year in 1966 and won the FA Cup, three Division One championships and the European Cup with United.
He joined the board of the club in 1984, a position he still holds today.
He was awarded the OBE in 1969, the CBE in 1973 and was knighted in 1994, the first footballer to gain the honour since Sir Stanley Matthews in 1965.
Golf legend Peter Alliss will be signing copies of his new book, Golf - The Cure for a Grumpy Old Man, at Borders on Monday, November 24, from 12.30pm.
