Player Profile

The Nottingham-born winger made only a handful of appearances for the Foxes during the club's Midland League days, making his debut against Derby Junction in September 1891 and moving on to Rotherham Town just a matter of months later.

He caught Fosse's attention by becoming the top-scoring winger in Doncaster Rovers' early fixtures in the Midland Alliance but his presence as a Fox was short and sweet.

However, he was to return to Filbert Street - as a goalscorer in Fosse's record 11-0 home defeat against Rotherham, who went on to win the Championship that year. Herrod went on to finish his career with Derby Town after his stint in South Yorkshire.
