Jack Charlton has passed away aged 85 following a long-term illness. The former centre-back spent his entire career with Leeds and made a club record 773 appearances between 1953 and 1973, helping the Whites win a First Division title, a Second Division title, two Inter-Cities Fairs Cups, an FA Cup, a League Cup and a Charity Shield. We hope these photos of on and off the pitch memories provide a fitting tribute to 'Big Jack'. READ MORE: Norman Hunter remembered
