  • Player profile

    Feltham-born Earle had been a prolific scorer for Fulham across three divisions when City signed him in November 1973. He made an instant impact with the Leicester faithful, scoring in his debut against Tottenham Hotspur a month after his arrival.

    Earle arrived for a fee of £100,000 and was signed by City boss Jimmy Bloomfield to help out Frank Worthington in attack. He helped City to the semi-final of the FA Cup in 1974, knocking out former club Fulham en-route, and also returned to Craven Cottage with Leicester for his testimonial in October 1975.

    As with all strikers, he hit a bit of a goal draught and was unfancied when Frank McLintock came to manage the Foxes. It meant Earle was allowed to move to the United States to continue his football career and he did so with Detroit Express and Tulsa Roughnecks before going on to help coach budding young players.
