READ MORE:'I never needed a knighthood, I was knighted by the Kop' - Roger Hunt set the bar for Ian Rush and Liverpool dynasties that followed ‘Sir Roger’, as he was affectionately labelled by the Kop, became one of the cornerstones of Bill Shankly’s first great Liverpool side of the 1960s having arrived at Anfield from Stockton Heath (later known as Warrington Town) in the Mid-Cheshire League following the completion of his national service just months before the iconic Scottish manager in 1959.

A host of Liverpool legends along with hundreds of fans at both Anfield and the city’s Anglican Cathedral were in attendance to pay their respects at the funeral of Roger Hunt.

Before the service, the funeral cortege passed Liverpool’s Anfield ground where hundreds more supporters had gathered to pay their respects.

Hunt, who scored a record 244 league goals for the Reds and was a member of England’s 1966 World Cup winning side, passed away at home peacefully last month at the age of 83.

His wife Rowan, children David and Julie, stepchildren Katie and Wayne and extended family were joined at Liverpool Cathedral by around 400 mourners.
