Sir Alf Ramsey Statue
Ramsey ended his playing career at Tottenham
Hotspur and became Ipswich Town manager in 1955.
He lead the Portman Road side to the Division
Tow Championship in 1960 and in an incredible
feat took them onto to become the First Division
Champions a year later. He became manager of the
England national side in 1963 and led them to
the winning of the World Cup in 1966. He was
knighted for his services to football in 1967
and became Sir Alf Ramsey. In 1977 he became the
first knight ever to manage a football club,
when he had a short spell as manager of
Birmingham City. He remains as England's most
successful manager to date. He passed away in
1999, aged 79.
