Norman Hunter Golf Day 2021 Charity Am-Am
Raised so far
Norman was born in Eighton Banks, County Durham in 1943. Football mad as a youngster, he worked as an electrical fitter until Leeds United enabled him to realise his boyhood dream by signing him as an apprentice in 1960. A long and distinguished career followed. He served the Yorkshire club for sixteen years, making 725 first team appearances before joining Bristol City. He later played for Barnsley before turning to football management. He was part of the 1966 FIFA World Cup winning squad, receiving a winner's medal in 2007. He was the first winner of the PFA Players' Player of the year in 1974 and was included in Football League 100 legends.
We as a family are raising money for research into Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia (CLL). Norman was diagnosed with CLL in 2013 and lived for many years under the care of Professor Hillmen and his amazing team at Bexley Wing of St James's Hospital. As his family we would like to assist them in helping those that follow Norman in funding continuous research into this disease. The funds will be dontated to Leeds Hospitals Charity.
Norman was given the chance of many more years with the help of the CLL care team but contracted COVID-19 and died in April 2020.
He is greatly missed.
