FOOTBALL legend Geoff Hurst kicked off a programme to make sport more accessible to the disabled.
But he couldn’t resist a quick kick-about on the field first with some eager young fans (pictured) when he arrived in East London for the launch at West Ham’s Upton Park stadium.
Sir Geoff, 1966 World Cup hero, was there to lend weight to the Sports for All’ campaign to enable everyone to get involved in sport.
The programme aims to train at least 500 sports coaches in communities up and down the country with an accredited qualification in coaching disabled people.
