Worcester Editorial 20th May, 2015 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

WORCESTER City legend Bill Jackman has died at the age of 91.

Jackman, whose grandson Danny Jackman is part of the current crop, originally appeared for the Blue & Whites as a guest player in the 1945/46 season and also guested for Swindon Town before being signed by City manager Jack Vinall.

Playing mainly as a right winger, he went on to bag 21 goals in his first season and established himself as a first team regular. He racked up 134 first team appearances and scored 43 times.

He was associated with Worcester as a player, trainer, assistant manager and caretaker manager for more than a quarter of a century.

A Worcester City spokesman said: “Bill gave the club great service and was always remembered fondly by those who knew him.

“We would like to extend our sympathies to all his family and friends.”
