TO mark the passing of the greatest ever goalkeeper to have donned the Wolves and England jerseys, here are two pieces of my late father's (Reg Corbett) most precious memorabilia.

Bert's book, signed for me; and a football bought from Bert's sports shop in Wolverhampton, and signed by Bert to mark my dad's 70th birthday in 2003.

I never saw Bert play and cannot therefore do him justice, but I know that my dad would have wanted me to pay tribute to 'The Cat in Wolf's Clothing'.

They certainly do not make them like Bert any more. Rest In Peace Bert Williams.

Clive Corbett,
