Mick Kennedy

Clubs played for: Halifax Town, Huddersfield Town, Middlesbrough, Portsmouth, Bradford City, Leicester City, Luton Town, Stoke City, Chesterfield, Wigan Athletic (1978-1994)

Born: 1961

Birthplace: Salford

Position: Midfielder

Biography: Kennedy took few prisoners as a no-nonsense hard tackling midfielder. This earned him the wrath of many a referee but also the seal of approval from the club's supporters. As a Republic of Ireland international, he won two caps and could also take a mean penalty. After quitting football he settled in Ennistymon, County Clare, in the Republic of Ireland near his parents' home where he lived a quiet life and shied away from football fame. He did coach a local team, Lifford A.F.C. having previously run his own soccer school in the area. Died on 9th February 2019, aged 57. He had been inducted into the Pompey Hall of Fame only the year before. In an interview TJ Flynn of The Clare People he conducted with Kennedy in April 2008, he claimed that 'the Portsmouth team were hellraisers, lunatics and madmen and were a throwback to a time when the players burned the candles at both ends then blowtorched the middle’.
