  • Player profile

    The strong and calm centre-back signed for City in November 1929 and went on to make over 280 appearances in the blue and white before and during the war, giving some great service to the Foxes - for the price of just £575 from Chorley, his hometown club.

    He'd started his career with Chorley St James before making the short trip to Chorley and then City, where he performed admirably in City's struggles in the First Division in the early 1930s. The Foxes eventually succumbed to the drop but bounced straight back in 1937, although Heywood's position was far from prominent.

    He did get more first-team action the following season, although in the wing-half position, but City suffered relegation again just before the start of the war.

    Heywood still played 41 matches for City during the war but Northampton Town also shared his services during that time. He 'officially' retired in 1941 to coach the City Colts but his final game for the club ended in success in 1946 when he won the County Cup with victory over Coalville.
