THE funeral of Warrington's greatest footballing son Roger Hunt will take place tomorrow.

Hunt, who started his career with Stockton Heath (now known as Warrington Town) before going on to great success with Liverpool and England, passed away on September 27 aged 83.

He scored 285 goals for Liverpool – the second most in the club's history – and was part of England's World Cup-winning team from 1966.

Members of the public are welcome to attend the service at Liverpool Cathedral, which starts at 11am.

The funeral service will be led by Canon Neal Barnes and supported by Reverend Bill Bygroves – the Liverpool Football Club chaplain – with tributes to be paid by former players to the man affectionately known as ‘Sir Roger’ by Reds supporters.

As a mark of respect, his hearse will pause outside Liverpool's Anfield home ground at approximately 10.20am on Thursday during its journey to the cathedral.
