That this House pays tribute, on the day of his funeral at St Peter's Church, Blackpool where he was organist, to Jimmy Armfield OBE DL, a football legend as player for Blackpool FC, a manager, England Captain and a hugely influential football commentator and journalist; commends Mr Armfield as an embodiment of all that was best about Blackpool and the football world; recognises the tireless work and support he did for charities and organisations across Blackpool, done with huge personal modesty and decorum; and offers condolences to his wife and all his family.
