Player Profile

The right-winger made his name with Wolves but didn't really cement his place in the starting line-up at Molineux. His performances were enough to impress Leicester boss Frank O'Farrell, however, who splashed out £30,000 for his services in October 1969, and he made his debut in the same month at home against Bristol City.

He settled with the Foxes like a duck to water, setting up a goal on his debut helping him along the way, and he was a key cog in City's 1971 Second Division Championship campaign.

He made 115 league starts in his four-year stint at the club and also chipped in with a decent return of 18 goals from out wide.

He followed O'Farrell to Cardiff City in November 1973 and helped the club avoid relegation to Division Three, as well as enjoy a Welsh Cup Final appearance, as well as a shot in European competition.

Spells with Northampton Town, AP Leamington and Bedworth United, amongst others, followed his short stint in the Welsh capital. His dad, Bob, was once a part-time scout for City and helped spot Trevor Christie.
