Football hero dies peacefully in Cayman

Cayman resident and FA Cup Final hero, Sammy Smyth, 91, passed away peacefully at his home in South Sound last Wednesday.

Until his death Smyth was the oldest surviving former Wolves player and the last living member of the side that won the FA Cup final against Leicester City in 1949, scoring what was described as one of the greatest goals ever seen at Wembley Stadium.

Smyth moved the Cayman Islands in the early 2000.

A memorial celebration will be held on November 5th at 3:00 pm, in St. Georges Anglican Church.
