Trevor Cherry experienced the highs and lows of Leeds. He
captained Huddersfield to the Division 2 title in 1970, and was
picked up by Don Revie in summer 1972. He took on just about every
position in the defence, and appeared in the midfield with equal
success. He picked up a League Championship medal in 1974, with
most of his appearances that season coming at left-back. He was
famously sent off for England in an ill-tempered match in Buenos
Aires: having had two teeth punched out by an Argentinian player,
the ref sent him off. He captained Leeds from the departure of
Billy Bremner through to his own departure in 1982.
Cherry moved to Bradford City where, as player-manager and then
manager, he took them up into Division 2, but fell out of favour
and was sacked in early 1987.
Danielle Cherry says: well what can I say - he's my dad and one
of the greatest guys I know!
steve says: Cherry was always my hero and I couldn't understand
why they kept playing him at the back when he all that skill. Saw
him score sweetly at Highbury to earn a well earned draw in 78?
Richard Jones says: Today 23rd Feb 2004 is Trevor's 56th
birthday. Just 3 days after his 29th birthday he scored the only
goal in the classic 5th round FA Cup tie v Man City at ER when his
strength and never say die attitude meant he got to the ball first
to put it past Joe Corrigan. That edged LU through against a very
good City team. I was there that day and that goal said everything
about Trevor Cherry who was also unlucky not to be chosen to start
in the 1975 European Cup Final.
emma b says: apparently he's related to me. he's my dads cousin

jake says: My grandma and grandad lived next door to him on
