Former Manager Enters Hall of Fame

Former Manager Enters Hall of Fame

&widthFormer Crewe Alexandra player and manager Harry Catterick has been inducted into the Football Museum's Hall of Fame.

Catterick managed the Alex between December 1951 to June 1953, also playing a handful of games as player-manager in the 1951-52 season. It was his first managerial job after spending five years as a player with Everton, where he eventually returned to manage the Merseyside club through one of their most successful periods.

With the Alex, Catterick was relatively successful going from the records. A couple of mid-table finishes in the basement division (Third Division North) was about as good as it got considering we finished three of the next five years either bottom or in the bottom three of table.

He left with a 41% win record to manage Rochdale in 1953, moving to Sheffield Wednesday in 1958. In 1961 he was appointed manager of Everton where he spent twelve years, winning two league titles and an FA Cup. He later had a spell with Preston; he passed away in 1985 at the age of 65.

Cattrick was inducted alongside other 2010 inductees including Ray Clemence, Kenny Dalglish and Stuart Pearce. Dario Gradi was inducted in 2004.
