Cardiff and Everton mourn Harris
Cardiff badge
Former Cardiff City, Everton and Newport County player Brian Harris has died aged 72.

Harris signed for Everton in 1954 from Port Sunlight for a fee of 10 and the versatile player proved his worth.

He won the League Championship with Everton in 1963 and was part of their 1966 FA Cup-winning side.

Five months later Harris was signed by Cardiff for 10,000, playing for them until 1971 before later returning to Ninian Park as assistant manager.

Harris helped the Bluebirds reach the semi-finals of the European Cup Winners Cup in 1968 and also managed Newport County during his career.

Born in Bebington, he made 358 appearances for the Toffees and also made 149 League appearances for the Bluebirds.

Always popular with team-mates and fans, both for his play and for his good humour and practical jokes, Harris later settled in Chepstow where he also worked for the Post Office.

At the request of his family, Harris' funeral service will take place at St Luke's Church next to Goodison Park on a date yet to be decided.
