'Merseyside Matthews' Jimmy Payne dies

Former Liverpool and Everton winger Jimmy Payne has died at the age of 86.

Payne, who spent the majority of his career at Anfield, was one of only 30 men to have played for both Merseyside clubs.

He was the last surviving member of the first Liverpool side to play at Wembley, where they lost to Arsenal in the 1950 FA Cup final.

The Bootle-born winger, a boyhood Everton supporter, joined Liverpool during the Second World War, made his debut in September 1948 and spent eight years as part of the first-team set-up, scoring 43 goals in 243 appearances.

His skills led to him being nicknamed the 'Merseyside Matthews' after former Blackpool, Stoke and England winger Stanley Matthews.

Liverpool's fortunes declined towards the end of Payne's time at Anfield, as he struggled with injuries, and they were relegated to the Second Division in 1954.

Two years later, he moved to Everton, but only managed six first-team appearances, scoring twice, before he was forced to retire. He later became a newsagent.

Shirley Morgan, Payne's daughter, told Liverpool's website: "For the last eight years, my dad has been in a home and it was a bit of a struggle, but he fought to the bitter end, bless him. Thankfully, he's at peace now."

Both clubs expressed their sadness at the news on Wednesday.
