Born: 1939

Biography: The Sheffield boy nicknamed 'Pancho', due to his sideburns, initially joined as an amateur. Turned professional in 1957 and showed signs of becoming a natural successor to his famous namesake, Stan Pearson. He was sent off twice before his 19th birthday, he couldn't hold down a regular first team place because of injuries despite his early promise, and he returned to his home town to play for Sheffield Wednesday in a 22,500 deal. He stayed in Yorkshire and worked as a driller for a Bradford engineering company before going self-employed in 1994 until his retirement.
