The FMPA are sad to hear of the passing of England World Cup 1966 Team Doctor, Alan Bass. The former Harley Street consultant was seated next to manager Sir Alf Ramsey as England beat West Germany 4-2.
Bass was also England’s doctor at the 1970 World Cup, and treated Gary Lineker’s broken wrist before the striker went on to win the Golden Boot at the 1986 World Cup.
Previously, Bass worked at Arsenal with former Gunners manager and England defender Billy Wright, and also helped famous film stars on set such as Sir Sean Connery.
The FMPA would like to offer our sincerest condolences to the friends and family of Alan.
