Nobby Stiles

Nobby Stiles MBE

Norbert ‘Nobby’ Stiles is in the heart of every fan of the England national football team because he played a vital role in the only time that team has won the World Cup – 1966 has gone down in history as the year that England was on top of the sports world. Few who were there will ever forget Nobby dancing around the Wembley pitch with the coveted Jules Rimet trophy in his hand.

Recently having his own private battle against prostate cancer, Nobby has now metamorphosised into a superb motivational speaker who can not only enthral audiences with stories from that historic football tournament but also has an inspiring tale to tell about how he came out of a working class area in Manchester to play for five years in the national squad, winning 28 caps and even scoring a goal!

Domestically, Nobby Stiles played football for 11 years for Manchester United, winning the European Cup once and the league title twice. There are only three Englishmen who have won both the European Cup and the World Cup and motivational speaker Stiles is one of them. Like his contemporary Norman ‘Bite Yer Legs’ Hunter, Nobby was well known on the football pitch for being a strong tackler but also for giving his all for the entire time that he was playing the game – a true asset to any team.
