William John Slater, footballer, born 12 April 1927; died 18 December 2018

Bill Slater has died at the age of 91. He had been suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

He played alongside Jimmy Hill and Rob Greenwood for Brentford, before moving to the midlands.

In the 1950s he won three league titles and a FA Cup winners' medal with Wolves, and scored for Great Britain in the 1952 Olympic games. He played for England, including 4 games in the 1958 World Cup finals.

With Blackpool, he was the last amateur player to appear in a FA Cup final (1951). In 1960 he was studying for a B.Sc. and became the only part-time player to win the 'Footballer of the Year' award.

Later he became president of the British Gymnastics association and head of physical education at Birmingham and Liverpool Universities.
