Player Profile

Spending four years at City and amassing over 120 appearances, Lever was a Welsh full-back who was a club record buy at £15,000 in September 1950.

He had impressed greatly with hometown club Cardiff City after also featuring for Cardiff Corinthians and was an ever-present in the City side that took the Division 3 South title in 1947.

The pressure was on from the off with Lever handed the captain’s armband on his arrival but that didn’t guarantee him a starting role with Stan Milburn pushing him stride from stride. He was part of City’s successful Division Two championship team of 1953/54.

Capped once for Wales against Scotland, Lever went on to play for Newport County and Barry Town in his homeland.
