Player Profile

Bristol-born Garland came through the Bristol City ranks and turned professional with the Robins. He came bursting on to the scene and was soon a fans' favourite, earning a call-up for England U23s along the way.

His early success as a teenager caught the interest of Chelsea, who signed him in August 1971 and he appeared for the London club in the League Cup final later that same season.

City forked out just under £100,000 for his services when they were struggling to avoid relegation, but his arrival helped the Foxes do just that. He netted eight goals in the final ten games of that first season as a Fox.

He played alongside Frank Worthington the following season but lost his place in the starting line-up, something which alerted his former club Bristol and they took him back to Ashton Gate. His second spell wasn't successful, but he did finish his career with 103 goals and was one of the few players to score for the same club in all four divisions.

After his career it was revealed that he suffered from Parkinson's Disease and a number of testimonial matches were held in his honour.
