  • Player profile

    Spending six seasons with the Foxes from July 1960 to September 1965, Heyes was back-up for Gordon Banks and played 27 matches in league and cup competitions.

    Arriving at Filbert Street at an unfortunate time with Banks, the England goalkeeper, in goal, Heyes still performed well when called upon. He arrived at the club from Rochdale, his first professional club, but eventually had to leave when Peter Shilton, then 16, pushed him for his reserve team place.

    Bolton-born Heyes eventually moved on to Swansea, but only after Leicester delayed his move due to an injury to Banks, which saw Heyes take the number one jersey for the opening nine matches of the 1965-66 campaign.

    His switch to Wales saw him gain more regular first-team action and he actually won a Welsh Cup winner's medal in that debut campaign for the Swans. Moves to Barrow, Bedford United and Hereford United followed.
