Biography: Spotted while playing in West Riding and made his debut against Derby in December 1971. He only arrived at the ground five minutes before kick off after answering an emergency SOS when it was discovered that both Peter Bonetti and John Phillips were injured. He eventually became first choice in the 1975-76 season, but after some unsteady displays, Eddie McCreadie replaced him with Bonetti who had rejoined the club. The brother of John Sherwood, who won an Olympic 400m hurdles bronze medal in 1968, he headed Grimsby youth set up before becoming an independent financial adviser in Lincolnshire. He is now working in office management and still living in the same area.

Sherwood, Steve I met Steve Sherwood in 2010 where he was (and still is) working in Grimsby as a Business Advisor to small companies. He told me about his days at Watford, and him and Tony Coton falling out of a wardrobe spying on his mate with a 'girl' in Thailand. Thoroughly nice guy. Gentle giant.
