Player Profile

Both Aston Villa and Preston North End wouldn't take a chance on the former Trent Valley League footballer when he played there on trial but City did, signing him to a professional deal in May 1922.

He took the number one jersey away from George Hebden on his arrival and went on to make a half-century of league appearances and six more in the FA Cup for the Foxes over a five-year period before moving on to Barnsley.

Godderidge was a key part of City's promotion-winning campaign of 1925, but the following season fell down the pecking order as City strove to maintain their higher-division status.

He searched for more regular football elsewhere with a refusal to act as understudy at City and his move away to him to South Yorkshire. Futher moves took him to Newark Town and Hinckley United, where he played alongside his brother George, who was a striker. He also played for Nuneaton Town before finishing his senior career with Tamworth.
