Liverpool's record league goalscorer and England's 1966 World Cup winner Roger Hunt was laid to rest on Thursday when his funeral took place on Merseyside.

The service, held at Liverpool Cathedral, was led by Canon Neal Barnes and supported by Reverend Bill Bygroves - the Liverpool Football Club chaplain - with emotional tributes paid by former players including Kevin Keegan - and here is his powerful eulogy from the service.

Nobody has played more games for Liverpool than Cally and, chances are, nobody ever will.

No-one has scored more goals for Liverpool than Roger Hunt.

When you talk about the history of Liverpool Football Club and the great achievements, it is easy to forget about what an incredible player he was.

Can I just say this: why isn't there a statue of Sir Roger Hunt, at The Kop End, where he was knighted, with something like '244 goals - catch me if you can' as an inspiration to everyone passing by, the kids who want to play football.

If you did that, I think Roger would look down and he would want one of those kids, to come pass there and he would want someone to one day play for Liverpool and one day overtake his record.
