Jimmy Armfield, CBE

Jimmy Armfield, CBE

It's not the knighthood we were all hoping for but nevertheless, everyone will be delighted that Jimmy Armfield's community work has finally been recognised with a CBE.

The honour follows his OBE that was awarded in 2000 for services to football.

Speaking about the honour, Armfield joked:

'I'm very grateful for the award - and just grateful to be here!

'I like to think this is an honour for Blackpool, the football club and for all the organisations I'm involved with.

'I get a lot of pleasure out of the work I do and the people I meet.'

With the 'Jimmy Armfield South Stand' set to open this year, as well as the planned creation of a statue at Bloomfield Road to honour him, 2010 promises to be a big year for 'Sir Jim'.
