Keeper Hopkinson mourned
Former England and Bolton Wanderers goalkeeper Eddie Hopkinson has died at the age of 69.

Hopkinson was capped 14 times for his country and was a member of Bolton's 1958 FA Cup-winning team.

Tommy Banks, who played with Hopkinson for both England and Bolton, paid tribute to him.

Banks said: "He was the greatest goalkeeper in one-to-one situations I ever played with or against or have ever seen."
