Trevor Howard (156 appearances/19 goals)

Trevor Howard scored Norwich City’s first ever goal from a substitute when he struck the winner against Hull City on Boxing Day in 1968 and will best be remembered as the Canaries’ ‘12th man’.

Forty-five of his appearances came as a substitute and although he played his part in the club’s Second Division championship win in 1972, he spent a lot of time on the sidelines. During his six years at Carrow Road he also notched 28 goals during 160 appearances for the reserves and was always kept around the first team squad.

He scored arguably his most important goal in 1972 after coming on as a substitute. City’s promotion challenge was flagging after six games without a win but Howard, on as a substitute for David Cross, delivered a late goal to lift the tension for a Carrow Road crowd of more than 30,000.
