Stanley Matthews' boots could score £8k

Stanley Matthews' match worn boots from the 1953 FA Cup Final will be selling alongside memorabilia of Bolton Wanderers legend Jimmy Sneddon at Bonhams, Chester on February 24.

The Blackpool winger's performance was so outstanding that the game became known as Matthews Final. They have attracted a pre-sale estimate of £6,000-8,000.

The sale also features a 1950 World Cup England international cap awarded to Bill Eckersley (estimated at £1,000-1,500).

Also on sale is the second medal thrown into the crowds by José Mourinho following Chelsea's 3-0 win against Manchester United at the 2005-6 Premier League - at the game which clinched Chelsea the Premier League title for the second successive season.

The Portuguese former Chelsea manager was presented with the second medal minutes after he had thrown his first winner's medal, along with his blazer, into the spectators at Stamford Bridge.

It has attracted a pre-sale estimate of £12,000-15,000.
