Liverpool legend Ray Clemence has announced his retirement from the England team coaching set up.
The former Anfield goalkeeper, 65, will step down from his role with The FA as Head of National Teams this month.
As a player Clem helped the Reds to three European Cups as well as five domestic title triumphs, an FA Cup, League Cup and UEFA Cup.
Then with Tottenham Hotspur, he went on to add another FA Cup and UEFA Cup to his haul of silverware.
He began his national team coaching career with Glenn Hoddle in 1996 and has worked for every England manager ever since.
In recent years, he has taken a wider role helping with the progressions of youngsters from U16 level through to the senior team.
Clemence said: "I have been lucky to have had 47 years in this wonderful game, of which 17 of these have been spent at The FA. I have been fortunate to meet and work with some wonderful people at all levels throughout my time here.
"I have enjoyed working with great players and also seeing young players start in the U16 development team and progress through those teams to the senior side.
"There are some frustrations working in The FA, but it is full of hard working dedicated staff who are all trying to improve the state of the game.
"I leave The FA with many happy memories that will stay with me for the rest of my life."
Sir Trevor Brooking said: "Ray has been an excellent ambassador not only to The FA, but to football in this country, and in particular in elevating specialist courses for the goalkeeping position.
"His standards both as a player and as a coach have been relentlessly high, and particularly in my time I have seen his impact on a succession of young players who have come through and established themselves at the highest level.
"We wish him the very best in retirement, and he will always be welcome back here at Wembley."
