Jabba's Comments

A local lad who had the best possible debut, coming on as a 17-year-old sub and scoring the only goal of the game against West Brom. With Leeds relegated to Division 2, the opportunity to develop his skills was lost to the desperate struggle to regain a position in the top flight, and with his form slipping, Eddie Gray swapped Connor with Brighton for the more experienced Andy Ritchie. Connor was a popular figure at Brighton and Portsmouth, scoring goals and starting to regain some of the form that had won him an England Youth cap. However he never quite made the breakthrough, and his international honours were restricted to an appearance for the U-21 side against Yugoslavia in 1987.

He stayed within the game after retiring from playing with a bit of coaching at Bristol City and is now reserve team coach at Wolves.

Jabba says: Cheers to Barry from Somerset for the photo.

Anonymous says: he was my cousin's friend and I remember that he scored on his debut. I kinda forgot it was as a sub.

Will Humphries says: Terry is now the Youth coach at Wolves, and is proving a good one at that. I met him in Portugal in July 2001 when Wolves went over there for a pre-season tour.

Stuart Cannonier says: Terry is my cousin, weird to say I have never met him. I watched his debut on telly with my brothers and we went mad when he scored.

Alan Leaf says: Terry lived in Chapeltown and came to Foxwood School in the mid 70's. I played alongside him for the school and for Leeds City Boys. We had a fine side with Martin Dickinson (Leeds Utd), Clive Freeman (Swansea), Andy Riley, Richard Benn & Jason Feeney (Wilsons Arms). Needless to say we won most of the cups & trophies in the District. The nucleus of this side went on to form Seacroft Santos and then Beechwood Santos in the Leeds Sunday League.

Andy Aveyard says: I knew him from his school days and played with him in the Leeds City Boys. Avery gifted person who didn't quite make the traansition from outstanding youth to senior football. Just seen him on TV on the staff during todays Wolves v Sheff Utd game for the Premiership playoffs 26/5/03. Good to see he is still in football

Leighton J Rees says: i run on the field with him as mascot for swansea when he was captain against leyton orient when i was a kid. he was my favourite swans player

Paul Bowden says: i play in the same football team with terrys son louis connor and i see terry connor every wednesday when lois comes training and every sunday when we play a match

James May says: Terry was a superb player for Brighton. He never stopped running and scored some great goals for us. I can't believe he left us for the Pompey scum

Brad says: I have been going out with his daughter Hayley for the past year. I see Terry and the rest of his family nearly every day.

joe says: I know terrys brother malcolm. Cos i play in the leeds city boys with malcolms son stefan. I guess their familly has a special talent for footy

Paul Seal says: Alan Leaf, Clive Freeman, Martin Dickinson, Stuart Mccall, Stuart Naylor, Paul Longden the list goes on. What a side Leeds City Boys had in those days. Many went on to make a career out of football. Say hello to everyone from Paul Seal, memories of Oldfield Lane will never be forgotten. Terry, not sure how many goals I set-up for you.. All the very best.

Andy Gaughan says: I played with Terry at Pudsey Juniors Under 13, he was then and still is the best player I have ever had the pleasure to play alongside, my father always said Terry would go on to play for England, unfortunately he never did but what a player!.

Richard Eastwood says: Played alongside Terry, Martin Dickinson, and Stuart( Harold ) Naylor with Leeds City Boys.They were in the year group below, but regulary played with us. I moved to Swansea in 88' and saw Terry play for the Swans during his time at the Vetch.Glad to see he is still making a living with football. He was a cocky 14 yr old at city boys, but always remember Andy Bell ( Our coach at City boys and his teacher at Foxwood) kept his feet on the ground !!
