  • Player profile

    Yorkshire-born Calvert was a former pit worker who was 24 before he sampled his first taste of senior football.

    Calvert was a goalkeeper and played locally at teams around the Doncaster district before signing for Bristol Rovers in May 1931. He arrived at Leicester just a year later and stayed for 12 years, becoming a loyal servant to the Foxes.

    His final outing for City came at the age of 40, almost 41, and earned him the status of being the club's oldest ever player at the time in competitive football. His best stint came when league football resumed in the 1946-47 campaign before moving on to Watford in 1948. His final stint came for Loughborough but a broken rib finally saw him bring his career to an end.
