Football player from 1970's
« on: April 28, 2017, 10:07:46 AM »
Hi all


Who was a famous football player from the 1970's named Unsworth. He was from birmingham area. I have no idea which team he played for.
So come on scratch your heads and think.
And whats he doing now.
Cheers chris

Agree with Maltablue David Unsworth played for Villa for a very short time [something like a month] before returning to Everton. He went on to play for various other teams West Ham Huddersfield etc. Moved to Preston N E as coach and as Caretaker Manager[ twice] back to Everton as U21 coach. Was appointed Caretaker Manager when Roberto Martinez was sacked and has now reverted to a Coaching Role at Everton.
Pretty sure that he was born in Chorley Lancs

David Unsworth wasn't born until 1973 so I don't see how he could be playing professional football in the 70s.


Lee Unsworth also a professional footballer playing for Crewe was also not born until 1973.


Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

Not everyone on this forum is a midland club supporter. I would have expected anyone who wanted to pay their condolences to Cyrille Regis would have posted in the thread Another one gone not Football player from the 70s Unsworth.
