On July 30th 1966 England win the World Cup, Geoff Hurst scoring a hat-trick in the 4-2 victory over West Germany at Wembley.

A strange coincidence at Chester on New Years Day 1966 when Aldershot were the visitors. Both full-backs were named Jones - and both ended up in hospital with broken legs! (Footballing injuries)
