Jimmy Husband

Jimmy Husband Date of Birth: Oct 15, 1947

Snapped up by Everton as a 15 year old in 1963 from Newcastle junior football, Jimmy became a regular for the Goodison side three years later and picked up a League Championship medal in 1970.

The England under-23 international was a fast and skilful forward with an eye for goal and became Luton manager Harry Haslam’s final piece in the jigsaw as the Hatters sought successfully to win promotion to the top flight in 1973/74.

Scorer of many vital goals during that season and the next four years for the Town, Jimmy finished his career, along with many others, in the NASL.

On his return Jimmy settled in mid-Bedfordshire and still lives in Clophill and was a welcome guest of the club in 2005 for the Kenilworth Road Centenary celebrations.
