Larry Lloyd
Nottingham Forest 1979 Euro Cup Team

*Attending Sunday only

Lloyd started his career with Bristol Rovers and made his name with Shankly's Liverpool in the early 70s and briefly forced his way into the England side, before he lost form and went to Coventry City. He came from there to Forest in 1976.
Alongside Kenny Burns, Lloyd was a defensive cornerstone of Forest's 1978 Championship-winning side as well as the European Cup successes that followed. Commanding in the air, he was never found lacking with the ball at his feet and his 'safaris' upfield were a feature of his successful spell at The City Ground.
He went to Wigan Athletic in 1981as player/manager coach, retiring as a player in March 1983. He managed Notts County from 1993-94 before becoming a publican in Nottingham.
He was a familiar face around the City Ground in more recent years with Century 106 but is now living in Spain.
