FA Chairman sends birthday wishes to one of England's oldest former players
One of England's oldest players turned 90 this week and FA Chairman David Bernstein has led the tributes.
Ivor Broadis represented the likes of Manchester United, Carlisle, Newcastle and Manchester City during his career between 1942 and 1960, as well as winning 14 caps for England.
He became the first England player to score two goals in game when he netted a brace against Belgium in the 1954 World Cup and he turned 90 on Tuesday.
Broadis was also the first manager to 'transfer himself' when he was the player-manager of Carlisle, from where he sold himself to Sunderland in 1949 and was replaced in the Brunton Park hot-seat by Bill Shankly.
After his playing career was over, Broadis became a respected journalist and is still a keen bowler and golfer in Carlisle.
Bernstein said: "On behalf of The FA, I'd like to wish Ivor all the best for his birthday and turning 90-years-old.
"He had an extraordinary career with his clubs and was the first England player to score twice in the same game in the 1954 World Cup.
"As we prepare to enter The FA's 150th anniversary year, it's players from the past such as Ivor that we can look to as inspiration for the future.”
