ONE of England’s World Cup-winning heroes will be heading to Barnsley next month.

Sir Geoff Hurst, who scored a hat-trick in the 1966 final against West Germany at Wembley, will be speaking to locals at Wombwell Main Cricket Club.

It’s part of the 79-year-old’s national tour, which stops off at the Windmill Road ground on September 10.

Martin Lyman, the club’s manager, told the Chronicle: “We’re exceedingly excited that we’ve got the chance to welcome a man that is the ultimate legend.

“It’s an honour that he’s coming.

“It cost a bit to bring him here but it’s definitely going to be worth it - it’s a piece of history.”
