'There are fans on the pitch, they think its all over. It is now'
Immortal words by Kenneth Wolstenholme as Geoff Hurst scored England's fourth goal thus sealing the historic and only World Cup triumph in 1966 against Germany.
To celebrate the event MAN Trucks held a handover ceremony of new trucks outside Wembley Stadium with their guest of honour being none other than Sir Geoff Hurst. Brit European took centre stage with their new MAN TGX with the number plate EN66 BET the keys of which were presented to Brit European MD, Graham Lackey by Sir Geoff. All told it was a fantastic event and to remember it I have reproduced a few photos taken on the day.
