EN 3A — Norman Hunter


The Gateshead born Hunter joined Leeds United from school at the tender age of 15. In his early years he was skinny and gaunt, inadequate even — a mere shadow of what he was to become. Indoctrinated into Don Revie’s tried and tested regime he was fed on daily rations of raw eggs and sherry. The end product — one of Europe’s most feared centre-halfs. During the 1972 FA Cup final the Leeds fans unfurled a banner which read ‘Norman Bites Yer Legs’, needless to say the nickname stuck.

Hunter was a formidable defender who had one mission — to take them down — and that he did it. He was so good at his job that he amassed an impressive 726 appearances over a 14 year period — a feat for which he was duly rewarded, scooping up a FA Cup winners medal in 1972 and two First Division League wins. Talking of the famous banner he said “I thought nothing of it..was at a time when you virtually had to commit murder to get sent off”. Legend. 28 England caps.
