Huddersfield Town are devastated to learn of the passing of former player and director Trevor Cherry.

Trevor, born in Huddersfield on 23 February 1948, went to school at Stile Common Junior School in Newsome and came from a family of Huddersfield Town supporters.

His love for the Club started at a young age and he was a regular down at Leeds Road with his father, Bill, watching and idolising the likes of Ray Wilson and Denis Law.

As a 15-year-old he joined Town’s ground staff from Huddersfield YMCA before signing a professional football contract with his boyhood club in 1965.

His ability was obvious, and he quickly established himself in the team and Town’s defence, making his debut at the age of 17.

He was a leader on the pitch and helped Town win the Second Division under Ian Greaves during the 1969/70 campaign.

He spent a further two-years with Huddersfield Town in the top-flight and made 188 appearances for the Club, scoring 12 goals.

In 1972 Trevor joined Leeds United, where he spent a decade and was part of the team that won the First Division.

It was during that time where he won his first England cap, going on to appear 27 times for his country and captain them on one occasion.

He finished his playing career at Bradford City and subsequently went on to manage them in the 1980s.

After a spell as a Manager, Trevor moved away from football and into business. However, in the 90s, he did have a spell at Huddersfield Town as an Associate Director.

Trevor was an inspiration to many, and his name will always be written in Huddersfield Town folklore.

The thoughts and prayers of everyone at Huddersfield Town are with Trevor's wife Sue, sons Darren and Ian, daughter Danielle and his five grandchildren at this difficult time.

RIP Trevor Cherry 1948 – 2020
