Player Profile

Local boy Harrison actually made his City debut as a centre-forward, and scored in a league game at Fulham in September 1946, but reverted back to his more tried-and-tasted full-back role thereafter.

He started his career with Wellington Victoria before moving to Leicester but the start of his Foxes career was thwarted by the war. He guested for a number of clubs after serving the forces abroad before featuring in 92 post-war games for the club.

He was an early example of an attacking full-back, using his pace and strength to surge forward from defence a number of times, and was also used as his was in his league debut as an attacker.

But his time at the club was perhaps remembered most by the fans for marrying the chairman's daughter of the time, something which brought rumours of favouritism at the club. At this time, Aston Villa stepped in to sign him but he couldn't pin down a regular starting role at Villa Park, something which saw him move on again to Coventry City before he finished his career more locally with Corby Town and Hinckley Athletic.
