Bert Frederick Williams MBE (31 Jan 1920 – 19 Jan 2014) RIP .
Acclaimed and much revered English international football goalkeeper. Nicknamed ‘The Cat,’ because of his extraordinary agility, he spent the majority of his playing career at Wolverhampton Wanderers where he won the League Championship and FA Cup. At the time of his death Williams was the oldest living England international.
Cited as a huge hero to the fellow nicknamed ‘Cat’ Peter Bonetti who would follow years later, I was lucky enough to see Bert play once for Wolves at Chelsea in the late fifties.
