ROY Paul, the man who captained Worcester City to their famous FA Cup victory over Liverpool, has died aged 82.

He died in his native South Wales after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease.

The midfielder, who made his name with Manchester City and won 33 caps for Wales, moved to St George's Lane in July 1957, only a year after lifting the FA Cup as captain of Manchester City.

He made 124 appearances for City, scoring three goals, including the legendary 2-1 success over Second Division Liverpool in 1959 and the 5-2 victory over Millwall in the previous round.

Paul also had a three-month spell as City's player-manager before moving to Brecon in 1960.

His funeral is due to be held near his home at Gelli, Rhondda, on Monday.
