Jimmy Dugdale, who played for Aston Villa in their 1957 FA Cup Final victory over Manchester United, has died at the age of 76.
Liverpool-born Dugdale also made 75 appearances for West Bromwich Albion and claimed his first FA Cup winners medal in 1954, before earning three England B caps.
He moved to Villa Park in 1956 and quickly became a fixture at the heart of Villa's defence, helping the club capture the Second Division title in 1960 and the League Cup 12 months later.
He scored three goals in 255 League and Cup games before moving to Queens Park Rangers. However, he never recovered fully from a cartilage injury suffered in a derby game against Birmingham City in 1962 and retired from the game in 1963.
He left football completely, becoming a publican in Witton, taking over Villa's Lions club and then acting as steward at the Hasbury Conservative club near Halesowen and at Moseley Rugby Club.
He had a leg amputated in 1990 and in 1992-93, Villa staged a testimonial against Blues on his behalf.
He died in hospital after a long illness and leaves a wife, Dorothy, two daughters, Debbie and Nicola and a son, Russell.
