Player Profile

Harrison, an outside-left from Derbyshire, excelled during a two-year stay with Fosse between 1911-13 and his form saw him move to a higher-level of football with Everton, where he went on to win a League Championship medal in 1915.

He'd started his career with Gresley Rovers before making the move to the Foxes and played 60 matches in league and cup for the club, as well as five matches during wartime, netting eleven goals overall.

He carved out numerous assists thanks to his top-drawer finishing and, as the stats show, helped out with a good return of goals along the way too. As well as playing at the highest-level of English football with the Toffees, Harrison also won two England caps after the war.

He played longer than most, too, retiring from top-level football at the age of 40 after making more than 500 senior appearances and notching 99 goals.
