Gary Speed will be inducted into the National Football Museum Hall of Fame, after being selected by an esteemed panel.

Speed, who made 139 appearances for Bolton between 2004 and 2007, is to be inducted for his dedication to the game, which also saw him represent clubs in the form of Leeds United, Everton, Newcastle United and Sheffield United - as well as earning 85 caps for the Wales national team.

Upon retirement from the game, Speed had a brief tenture in charge of Sheffield United, before taking over the reigns of his country in December 2010.

He tragically lost his life in November 2011, but Speed's name lives on and he will be inducted in the Hall of Fame this coming September, after being selected by greats such as Sir Geoff Hurst, Gordon Banks, Sir Bobby Charlton, Peter Schmeichel, Roger Hunt, Kevin Keegan, Bryan Robson, Francis Lee, Trevor Francis, Ossie Ardiles, George Cohen, Norman Hunter, Sue Lopez and Marianne Spacey.

Joining Speed in the class of 2017 are Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard, Billy Bonds, Bob Wilson, Kelly Smith and Rachel Yankey.

The ceremony will take place at the National Football Museum, in Manchester, on September 21, 2017.
