Player Profile

City signed the Leicester-born full-back while he was on leave during wartime from the Navy and he turned professional on being demobbed. A winger before playing for the Navy during the war, he converted to a defender on his arrival at the club but acted mainly as a reserve player during his first two seasons with the club.

He got his chance when regular starter Willie Frame got injured and took it, helping City to Wembley in 1949. His performances during the second half of that season saw him keep his place in the starting line-up the following year but the arrival of Arthur Lever lost him his place.

After five years with the club, where he amassed 65 appearances in all competitions, pitching in with just one goal, he moved on to Plymouth Argyle for more regular action but failed to break into their team, too, as the Pilgrims enjoyed a promotion-winning campaign. When he did get his chance it didn’t last long as injury thwarted his appearances.

After his professional career came to an end he held the position of leading guided tours of Filbert Street before his death in 2000.
