Former Wolves inside forward Jimmy Dunn, who helped his club to win the FA Cup in 1949, has died at the age of 91.

Edinburgh-born Dunn's passing leaves Sammy Smyth as the sole survivor from Stan Cullis's winning side 65 years on.

Dunn made over 100 appearances for the Midlands club in wartime football, going on to score 40 times in 144 league and cup games until leaving for Derby County for £15,000 in 1953.

He went on to play non-league football for Worcester City and Runcorn.

On retiring from the game, Dunn ran a pub in Wolverhampton before qualifying as a physiotherapist.

He then joined West Bromwich Albion as a trainer under Alan Ashman and was on the bench for the 1968 FA Cup Final win over Everton.
