FLOWERS IN THE GRAVE
English footballer Ron Flowers has died aged 87. He played for 15 years and 500 games for Wolves in the 1950s and 1960s, and also played a decade in the midfield for England alongside Bobby Charlton. Flowers didn’t play during the 1966 World Cup, despite being in the team, as Alf Ramsey preferred Jack Charlton in the same role. Despite this he won three league titles with Wolves, the sort of thing which seems like science-fiction nowadays. He was picked by three teams: Kicking Buckets instead of Balls, Sudden Death and its goodnight from him.
