Bloomer to be inducted to football hall of fame

By Steve Nicholson

Steve Bloomer is to join the name of legends in the National Football Museum's Hall of Fame.


Derby County's greatest-ever player is on the list of this year's nine inductees.


The other eight are Jimmy Armfield, David Beckham, Thierry Henry, Emlyn Hughes, Paul Scholes, Ray Wilson, Pauline Cope from the women's game, and former manager Bertie Mee.


Bloomer scored 332 goals for the Rams in 525 games over two spells in the 1890s and early 1900s.


He also scored 28 goals in 23 internationals for England.


The Hall of Fame is now in its seventh year, and players and managers inducted in previous years include George Best, Sir Bobby Charlton, Sir Stanley Matthews and Bill Shankly.


Bloomer joins another Derby County legend Dave Mackay in this elite line-up.


Each year the names are chosen by a panel of experts including Sir Alex Ferguson, Jimmy Greaves, Gary Lineker, Alan Shearer, Mark Lawrenson and Gordon Taylor.


They are assisted by a panel of football historians.


This year's annual ceremony will be held at the Millennium Mayfair Hotel in London on Thursday, September 18.
