Jimmy Armfield-

Along with thousands of people across the country not only in football and broadcasting
but also in the wider community of public service, Lancashire Schools Football Association, its members, players past and present and supporters of schools' football join in commemorating the passing of Jimmy Armfield .

Jimmy was one of two Lancashire greats to become Patrons of LSFA. Along with Sir
Tom Finney, Jimmy completed an exceptional pair of football greats at the head of Lancashire Schools FA. It was not just as footballers for their one and only clubs, Preston North End and Blackpool, but as role models for young players that made each of them outstanding examples of what sport can achieve.

The sympathy of all in schools' football joins the deserved tributes to an exceptional but
humble man, a sportsman and a gentleman in every sense of the words.
