News | Published:

Wolves legend Bert Williams has been taken to hospital after falling and fracturing his spine.

The ex-goalkeeper was admitted to New Cross Hospital yesterday morning after a fall at Croft Residential Home in Finchfield where he lives.

His daughter Ann Crawshaw said: "He was trying to get out of his chair at the home when he fell.

"He was taken to New Cross Hospital's A&E department and thankfully he was alright through the night."

Mr Williams, England's oldest living international at 93, starred for the club in the glory years and helped win the League and the FA Cup.

He played for England more than 20 times and made 420 appearances for Wolves after joining the club in 1945.
