Colin Garwood

Clubs played for: Peterborough United, Oldham Athletic, Huddersfield Town, Colchester United, Portsmouth, Aldershot. (1967-1981)

Born: 1949

Birthplace: Heacham


Biography: A prolific goalscorer for all his clubs and added to his tally during his three year stay at Fratton Park. He was initially brought in to replace the popular David Kemp and had to work hard to win the fans over. A goal average of one in every two games for two consecutive seasons helped him achieve this, but it still did not stop him being cast aside by John Deacon. Despite ending up as top scorer in the 1979-80 promotion, Colin moved to Aldershot in the January for £54,000. He now lives in Newark, Notts and works for an engineering company in Wisbech.
