Preston legend Tom Finney passes away

Former England and Preston North End star Tom Finney has died at the age of 91.

Finney was the first player to twice win the Footballer of the Year award - in 1954 and 1957 - and he played in three World Cups and scored 30 times in 76 internationals.

He played a major role in fine English victories, 10-0 away against Portugal and 4-0 against Italy in Turin alongside Stoke star Neil Franklin.
