    This is my brother Trevor Smith. A great Ipswich Town footballer. He played with all the best players of his era Well proud of him.

  • I well remember what a nice guy trevor was. 1964,i was a 16 year old making my debut at Layer Road v Colchester Utd.I was so nervous i felt sick.this guy came and sat with me for most of the pre game,coaching and mentoring me such that when I went out i felt king of the world.I played with confidence and kept my place going forward for some time.Now in Melbourne ,Australia I so often think of that evening,and the difference one guy made to what became one of the highlights of my life.

  • Joined Town in March 1962 (not August 1964 as previously noted) as an apprentice professional

    I worked with Trevor for many years . Trevor was a true gentleman. I never heard him swear or lose his temper. he was very modest about his achievements as a professional footballer. Let me tell you, he had to be some player to get into the Ipswich town squad as a youngster because they had some great players at the time. Trevor Smith , a true gentleman.

  • In answer to Neil Brown`s comments: Ernie Tagg who was the manager of Crewe at the time offered me a contract, after further discussion with him I decided to quit professional football after twice breaking same leg in the same place during my career at Ipswich and I did not want further injuries. First break occurred at Ipswich and the second break I was on loan to Cambridge City playing at Poole in Dorset when I was kicked in exactly the same place as the previous break. I played for a further ten minutes not knowing the extent of my injury until I had it checked out at Cambridge hospital the next morning where it was confirmed to be a fracture in the same place. I then returned by taxi to Lowestoft and resumed my contract with Ipswich until the end of the season.

  • This is my dad!

  • Although you have Trevor Smith's next team down as Crewe he never played for them. He may have gone for a trial but was not signed on. He did however the following season play for Cambridge City.
