Player Profile

Coalville-born Harrison scored on his City debut in their wartime game against Millwall in February 1946 but was better known for creating the goals from right-half than scoring them.

He scored six goals in just short of 150 appearances for the club during and after the second world war but put many more on a plate for the City strikers, something which saw him earn two call-ups for the England B team.

Born in Coalville, he started out at his hometown club before arriving at City after serving with the Navy, who he also represented at football. He enjoyed particular success in cup competitions, helping City to a Wembley runners-up finish in 1949 and scoring a 50-yard wonder goal against Sheffield Wednesday.

A move to Chesterfield followed but he couldn't help the Spireites avoid relegation, even though he was a regular for the club. Moves to lower-league sides such as Corby Town, Grantham Town and Hinckley Athletic brought his playing days to a close.
