Former Liverpool star Geoff Strong dies

Former Liverpool player Geoff Strong, a member of the club's first ever FA Cup-winning side, has died at the age of 75.

Strong made his name as an inside-forward at Arsenal before moving to Anfield for £40,000 in November 1964.

He replaced the injured Gordon Milne in Liverpool's starting line-up at Wembley as they beat Leeds 2-1 to win the 1965 FA Cup.

The versatile Strong played in nearly every outfield position during his six years at Anfield, eventually settling in as a left-back. His played his part as Liverpool won the First Division championship in 1966, and scored to help them beat Celtic in that year's European Cup Winners' Cup semi-final.

However, he missed the final defeat against Borussia Dortmund at Hampden Park through injury. Strong left to join Coventry in August 1970, retiring a year later and moving into hotel furnishing and the pub trade.

A Liverpool statement, published on the club website on Tuesday morning, read: "Liverpool Football Club is deeply saddened to announce the passing of former player Geoff Strong.

"A member of Bill Shankly's successful team of the 1960s, the 75-year-old passed away peacefully this morning.

"He will be sadly missed by all his former team-mates and anyone who ever watched him in action. "The thoughts of everyone at Liverpool Football Club go out to his family and friends at this sad time."
