Profile

Geoff Hurst, famously the only footballer to score at hat-trick in a World Cup final at Wembley in 1966 also played one County Championship game for Essex in 1962. He was an outstanding fielder, and occasional wicket-keeper, however his footballing commitments meant that he was restricted to only one first-class cricket match. He later recalled that the first time he played alongside Bobby Moore was for an Essex school's cricket team.
