"Sir Geoff was arguably the most balanced guest we have ever had. His professionalism and personal humility was a paradoxical mix that won the greatest respect of everyone there. Coupled with this was his ability to converse on topics at the highest level, whilst knowing when to revert to boyish humour. A truly outstanding individual."
Nigel Jackson, Head of RBS Retail Banking

"Working with Geoff Hurst was an absolute pleasure. On camera, Geoff was very natural and engaging and delivered exactly what was needed. Throughout the shoot he was charming and a true professional. It's not every day that you get to work with a World Cup winner and working with Geoff was a real joy."
Sam Grace, BAFTA winning TV Director

"It has been a real pleasure working with Sir Geoff throughout the year. His dedication to the cause and willingness to get involved has been invaluable and will be a hard act to follow for any future presidents."
John Shanley, Chief Executive, Sparks

"Geoff and I have been friends ever since the 66 World Cup and worked together over the years. When he came on my theatre show a couple of times this year he was one of the very best guests we have ever had. Funny and intelligent at the same time and extremely good when meeting the fans. I'd love to work more wIth him in the coming years before we both get too old. He's truly a delight to work with and a great bloke as well!"
Jimmy Greaves, 1966 World Cup squad footballer, presenter, author and pundit

Sir Geoff Hurst

Sir Geoff Hurst MBE secured a unique place in the history of football in 1966 when he became the first and, for more than 56 years, the only player to score a hat-trick in a World Cup Final.

Sir Geoff says that he 'had a great run', nevertheless he remains the only player to score a 'perfect' hat-trick and the only to be on the World Cup winning team.

Knighted in 1998 and inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame in 2004, Sir Geoff holds a special place in the hearts of football fans across the world and, perhaps surprisingly, this includes Germany!
