Paul Futcher

Paul FUTCHER

After only 20 games for his home town club Chester, 17 year old Paul was snapped up by Luton manager Harry Haslam for £100,000 in June 1974 just as the Hatters were about to embark on an ill-fated season in Division One.
Making his Hatters debut earlier than the fans expected, Paul proved a revelation playing without fear in the heart of the defence. An international career beckoned but a couple of major road accidents seemed to take the edge off his play although he still commanded a large fee when transferred to Manchester City in 1978.
Paul played League football until nearly 40 and then went on to manage a variety of non-League clubs and took Southport to the F.A.Trophy final in 1998. Living in Holmfirth, Paul became a sports coach at a Huddersfield college before sadly passing away in 2016.
