Sir Geoff Hurst and Kevin Keegan led the tributes to Roger Hunt at the funeral of Liverpool’s record league goalscorer. Former team-mates and senior executives from the club, including CEO Billy Hogan, joined Hunt’s family for the hour-long service of celebration at Liverpool Cathedral. Hurst was not present but his eulogy to his fellow 1966 World Cup winner, who died last month aged 83, was read by Liverpool’s club chaplain Bill Bygroves.
