Comedian Frank Skinner has unveiled the nameplate of a tram named after former England soccer striker Jeff Astle.
Jeff Astle played for West Brom and England
Mr Skinner, a close friend and former colleague of Astle, unveiled the Midland Metro tram at a ceremony in Wednesbury, West Midlands on Saturday.
Astle, a West Bromwich Albion legend, emerged as the most popular choice when the people of Sandwell were asked to nominate a candidate to be immortalised on
one of the network's trams.
Mr Skinner, an Albion supporter, said: "I don't think there is much danger of Albion fans ever forgetting Jeff, even the ones who never saw him play.
"This is a unique way of paying tribute to the great man."
Astle, who played for England five times, is the first person to be honoured with a nameplate on the Wolverhampton to Birmingham tramway since it was opened in May 1999.
The striker died at his home in Burton-upon-Trent, Staffordshire, aged 59 in January 2002.
