Tony Knapp was an English defender who died aged 86 and played for Leicester, Southamptom, Coventry and was coach of the Iceland national team in 74-77 and 84-85

In the source the age is 96, there must be some confusion

In answer to your question, Johnny Giles, Paul Reaney, Allan Clarke, Mick Jones, David Harvey and Eddie Gray of the classic Revie era Leeds team are all still batting so enough for a six aside team at present. A few other players around the fringes of that team like Terry Yorath, Joe Jordan, Frank Gray and Rod Belfitt are also still going.

Sofian Kiyine, former Serie A and Morocco U21 midfielder currently plying his trade in Belgium, making headlines for driving his car at 200mph and then this happened:

 

 

Luckily the building he ploughed into, a school gym, was empty at the time. He's hospitalized but injuries are apparently not life-threatening.

So, three "legends" from Carlisle United's top flight season came out and waved to the crowd on Friday l-r Hughie McIlmoyle, Ray Train and Tom Clarke, all fairly chipper which is relevant hereabouts because there were rumours 83 year McIlmoyle was not well, such talk appears unfounded. McIlmoyle (who is the figure in the statue outside Brunton Park) is definitely obitable, Train probably so, Clarke would be Deathrace fodder at best.
