Alec Briggs died quite a long time ago. So I believe but cannot find any date of death on Wikipedia. According to this he is still alive aged 82.

Hi C A. I recently added Alec's name to another topic where several left backs with surnames beginning with B were mentioned. Like Alec I was a former right footed full back who played on the left so rembered him when your post came up. I too had my doubts so tried a check and came up with the following link. I just had to trust it is authentic. https://www.howold.co/person/alec-briggs

Sir Geoff has to be one of the best centre back headers of a ball for his height ever. Great leap 

Wasn't Sir Geoff one of the players Arsenal were after? Sir Tom Ritchie was the other one IIRC.

So glad I was around when they were playing, what a team! 

Sir Ray Cashley

Sir Gerry Sweeney

Sir Brian Drysdale

Sir Geoff Merrick

Sir Gary Collier

Sir Trevor Tainton

Sir Tom Ritchie

His highness the most honourable Gerry Gow

Sir Clive Whitehead

Sir Jimmy Mann

The most honourable Sir big Cheese

Finally Sir Keith Fear.

What a side they were, absolutely awesome!
