Former Chelsea forward Tommy Baldwin has died aged 78 following a long illness, the club have announced.
He went on to score 17 in his debut season for the club and played in the 1967 FA Cup final, which they lost to Tottenham.
Baldwin's ability to absorb tackles contributed to his nickname 'The Sponge' and he continued his goal-scoring prowess with 16 goals in his following season for the Blues.
Despite spending four months on the sidelines in the 1968/69 season, Baldwin scored twice in a 4-0 away win against Manchester United, who had recently been crowned European champions.
The forward helped Chelsea win the FA Cup in 1970 as they beat Leeds 2-1 in a replay and he played a key role as they claimed the European Cup Winners' Cup with a 2-1 replay win over Real Madrid in Greece the following year.
Baldwin narrowly missed out on lifting another trophy as Chelsea were beaten by Stoke in the 1972 League Cup final and eventually left the club to play in the North American Soccer League in the mid-1970s.
