Terry Heath 1944-2011


Yesterday I was saddened to hear of the death of  Terry Heath former football player for Scunthorpe United.
He began his career at Leicester City where he played in the 1964 League Cup Final against Stoke City with Leicester winning 4-3 on aggregate.
In May 1964 he was transferred to Hull City but found his opportunities limited. He did however score twice in an FA Cup win over Nottingham Forest in 1966.
He signed for Scunthorpe in March 1968. He soon became a crowd favourite scoring often from midfield.
My memories of him are of a hard working footballer who would unleash his explosive shot from the edge of the area.
He played a major role in the shock cup win at Sheffield Wednesday in 1970.
He made 176 league appearances for Scunthorpe scoring 50 goals. He left Scunthorpe in 1973 to join local rivals Lincoln City but had to retire a year later through injury.
After retirement he ran a guest house on the South coast and became a successful artist painting countryside scenes.

I never knew what political views he held but at the time I watched him play he wore red and that'll do for me.

  1. I knew Terry Heath for the last 8 years of his life, he lived a few doors away from me in Spain. He was a lovely man and a sad lost when he died... Des
