Sir Bobby Charlton To Replace Sam Allardyce At Plaque Unveiling

Footballing legend, Sir Bobby Charlton will replace disgraced England manager, Sam Allardyce, at a memorial ceremony for Duncan Edwards on Saturday afternoon. 

The ceremony, organised by Cllr Dave Tyler, Dudley North MP, Ian Austin and local historian and documentary maker, Rose Cooke, celebrates the 80th birthday of the late footballer - who is regarded by many professionals as one of the greatest players of all time. A blue plaque will be unveiled in his honour in the park where he played as a youngster, having lived most of his life on Elm Road on the Priory Estate.

Allardyce was scheduled to be the FA's representative at the event, but pulled out yesterday after leaving his role as England manager following a sting by the Daily Telegraph.

the unveiling takes place at the kick-off time of 3pm at Priory Park in Dudley.
