A hat-trick of special guests were in attendance for a Christmas dinner at Bertie’s banqueting rooms in Elland.

World Cup winners Sir Geoff Hurst, Gordon Banks and Nobby Stiles were the star attractions for the event on Wednesday night and took part in a 40-minute Q&A session as well as signing photographs and posing for pictures.

Stephen Oleksewycz, from organisers OlexyFresh Promotions, said: “It was a fantastic night, it couldn’t have gone any better.

“It was a sell-out and some of the proceeds from the evening will be going to charity.

“The three World Cup winners were absolutely brilliant. It’s quite rare that they get together these days but they were very accessible and stayed behind signing autographs and having their photos taken.”
