Stanley Matthews was presented with the tea service in 1946

It led a sale at Halls Auctioneers in Shrewsbury.  

He was presented with the piece in recognition of his then record 44th cap for England against Belgium in 1946.

Auctioneer Jeremy Lamond commented: "We were delighted with the price achieved for the tea service which was a very fitting tribute to Sir Stanley, a football legend.

"Any item associated with him attracts a huge amount of interest from football fans and collectors alike and the tea service had the added bonus of being connected to his record appearance for England."

Matthews is regarded as one of the greatest British footballers.
