Apparently had a heart attack whilst walking in Spain. At least he’s now reunited with his wife who he loved so much. Thoughts are with his family & friends. A great loss for the game too. RIP Trevor. That goal will always be the most famous in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] history

I always thought that he may have joined Argyle if the progressive policy instigated by Waiters had been in situ a few years earlier but it was not to be-we were deprived of the mouth watering prospect of Francis and Mariner in the same Argyle team. He had a very distinguished career nonetheless as a player and had his moments as a manager-it was rumoured a few times that he was in contention for the Argyle job but that didn't come to pass either.

RIP Trevor
