Player Profile

Fred started his career with Bury and made the move to Leicester on the back of manager Norman Bullock, his boss at Gigg Lane, taking charge of City.

He was thrown straight into the inside trio line-up, making his debut at Leeds United in March 1951. It started a run off 55 league games for the club and two in the FA Cup, notching a healthy nine goals along the way.

The arrival of Johnny Morris brought the end of his regular first-team appearances for the club and he was soon consigned to reserve team football. That was until be fashioned a move to Exeter City in the summer of 1955 and then Oldham Athletic, a year after, but chances continued to be at a premium.

He dropped down the league ladder and ended up playing for Ashton in the Lancashire Combination League but an ankle injury forced him to bring his football career to an end.
