Former referee Jack Taylor OBE, has died at his Shropshire home at the age of 82.
Described by the Football League as "perhaps the finest English referee of all time", Taylor officiated in more than 1,000 matches during his 30 year career.
He also took charge of more than 100 international fixtures, including the 1974 World Cup final between West Germany and Holland in Munich, where he made history by awarding the first-ever penalty in a World Cup final.
