Bobby Moore holding the Crisp Shield in 1951

February 24 marked exactly 23 years since the death of Bobby Moore, England’s 1966 World Cup captain. Bobby was born and raised in Barking, and later this year an English Heritage blue plaque will be put up at his childhood home in Waverley Gardens. This photo shows Bobby as captain of the Barking Primary Schools side which won the Crisp Shield in 1951.
