Former England international footballer Ivor Broadis has died aged 96.
He won 14 caps for his country and scored twice in three appearances in the 1954 World Cup.
During his club career he played as an inside-forward for Carlisle United, Sunderland, Newcastle United, Manchester City and Queen of the South.
In a Twitter tribute, Carlisle described him as "a true gentleman, a fantastic athlete and sportsman, and a top quality journalist".
Posted to RAF Crosby-on-Eden after World War Two, Broadis signed for Carlisle in 1946.

Broadis worked as a football reporter in the city following his retirement and was England's oldest surviving international footballer.

Also Carlisle were having financial problems while Ivor Broadis was the player/manager so he had to make the decision of whether to sell their most valuable player. Their most valuable player happened to be called Ivor Broadis so he organised his own transfer to Sunderland for £18,000 which solved Carlisle's pressing financial problems.

Although that amount doesn't sound much now it was a lot of money in 1949.
