Mick McGuire was a very tidy midfielder who was with City for eight years.

McGuire joined the Canaries from Coventry in January 1975 for £60,000, departing in March, 1983, when he joined Barnsley – although his City spell did include a loan in the summer of 1978 to the Tampa Bay Rowdies, who he helped to Soccer Bowl ‘78. He also played for Oldham Athletic and then Grantham Town.

The 64-year-old became deputy chief executive for the PFA (Professional Footballer’s Association), sharing the role with Brendan Batson until July 2002 when he took sole charge.

However, his PFA job came to a controversial end in 2009, when he was axed amid reports of a breakdown in relations with chief executive Gordon Taylor – although it was then revealed that McGuire was dismissed following allegations of bullying.
