BURNLEY goalkeeper Joe Hart was among the pallbearers at 1966 World Cup winner Gordon Banks' funeral on Monday.

Hart, who has 75 caps for England joined Jack Butland, Joe Anyon and Kasper Schmeichel - the current number ones at the three English clubs Banks played for: Stoke, Chesterfield and Leicester - as pallbearers.

Banks died aged 81 on February 12 and hundreds gathered at the bet365 Stadium to pay their respects.

A five-car funeral cortege passed through Stoke's stadium, stopping at the pitchside dugout for a few minutes, to sustained applause from the assembled crowd.

The various achievements of Banks, who also won the League Cup with Stoke and Leicester, were displayed on the big screen as a chant of "England's number one" broke out.

Sheffield-born Banks made nearly 200 appearances for Stoke and, such was his standing, he was named the club's president following the death of Sir Stanley Matthews at the turn of the century.

The statue erected in Banks' honour, holding the Jules Rimet trophy aloft, was decorated with several Stoke and England scarves.

The ground was adorned with shirts, flags and even the odd pair of goalkeeping gloves in tribute to one of the city's favourite adopted sons.
