Burnley hero Jimmy Robson has died aged 82.
The former Clarets inside forward was a member of the title-winning squad in 1960 and scored in the FA Cup final defeat to Tottenham in 1962.
He made nearly 250 appearances for Burnley over a nine year stay at the club before going on to play for Blackpool, Barnsley and Bury.
He had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease – and is the seventh member of Burnley’s title-winning squad to die with the condition.
Burnley posted on social media: “We’re saddened to hear of the passing of Jimmy Robson this morning.
“The Clarets legend won the First Division with Burnley in 1960 and made 242 appearances.
“The thoughts of everyone at Turf Moor are with Jimmy’s family and friends.”
Former Burnley star Steve Davis was among those to pay tribute to Robson on social media, as countless fans shared their memories of a man who loved football.
Robson was a key component of the successful Clarets side that claimed the league title on the final day of the 1959-60 season when Burnley won at Man City.
Speaking to Lancs Live last year to mark the 60th anniversary of the championship success, Robson recalled the day.
“We just went off the field. Man City put something on and we got a glass of champagne but there was nothing else on.
“But when we got to Rawtenstall and people were crowding the streets, people were waving at the bus.
“We were surprised but we realised what it meant them.”
