The 2017 National Football Museum Hall Of Fame inductees have been announced, and tickets are now on sale for the exclusive celebration dinner that will see these 9 great players honoured.

Tables and a limited number of individual tickets are available for the event, which takes place at the National Football Museum on 21 September 2017.

The inductees

The National Football Museum Hall Of Fame, supported by The PFA, will see 5 new players, as voted for by the Hall Of Fame selection panel and members of the Hall Of Fame, inducted on the evening. Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard will take his place, alongside fellow England centurion and Chelsea record-breaker Frank Lampard. Arsenal double-winner Bob Wilson will be inducted, as will West Ham's two-time FA Cup-winning captain Billy Bonds. The late Gary Speed will be honoured for his commitment to the game during a record-breaking career in top-flight football.

The FA support the Hall Of Fame by nominating female players for the Hall Of Fame. This year two Lionesses legends will be included. Kelly Smith has been described as "the first global superstar of English women's football" and remains England's leading international goalscorer. Winger Rachel Yankey has spent two decades at the pinnacle of the game, winning 129 caps for England and multiple trophies with Arsenal Ladies.

This year's Football For All inductee, as nominated by The FA, is Alistair Patrick-Heselton, a Team GB Paralympic silver medallist and England CP footballer, whose semi-professional career was stopped when he received life-threatening injuries in a car crash aged 23.

The Hall Of Fame historian panel have voted for Manchester United's 1909 FA Cup-winning captain Charlie Roberts; the club's first England international.
