The final preparations are underway for an exhibition celebrating the life of Chelsea footballer Peter Osgood.

The top player was born in Kentons Lane, Windsor, and died in 2006 aged 59 from a heart attack.

On August 13 the exhibition, Peter Osgood: A Striker to Remember, will be launched at Dedworth Library and run until December.

The exhibition has been organised by Cllr Ed Wilson (Con, Clewer South) and Daniel Howick from the Royal Borough Museum at Windsor Guildhall.

In February, an oak tree was planted in Osgood Park, in Foster Avenue, to mark a decade since his death.

The pair called on members of the community and fans of the striker to provide photographs and memories of the famous footballer.

Mr Howick said: “We’ve had things from friends and family members and we are still getting bits in.

“We have a lot of photographs, football caps and an England youth kit.”

The exhibition will be launched at the library in Smiths Lane at noon on August 13.
