TERRY BUTCHER FACTFILE
Born: Singapore, 1958 (Age 56) Playing Career: Born in Singapore, Butcher moved to Suffolk as a youngster aged two and grew up supporting Ipswich, the club he joined aged 17 in 1976. He made his debut the same year and eventually made over 300 appearances, winning the UEFA Cup in 1981 and twice finishing second in the old First Division. The centre-back joined Graeme Souness’ Rangers for £725,000 in 1986, captaining them to three league titles and two Scottish Cups in fourseasons before leaving to become player-manager of Coventry City in 1990. Sacked after six appearances in two years, Butcher then spent a season at Sunderland (during which he again became player-manager) before finishing his playing career with Scottish side Clydebank in 1993. Butcher also won 77 caps for England and played in the 1982, 1986 and 1990 World Cups, where England reached the semi-finals. Managerial Career: Appointed manager of Motherwell in 2002, Butcher overcame serious financial problems to keep the club in the Scottish Premier League and reached the Scottish League Cup final in 2005. He then had brief, unsuccessful stints at Australian side Sydney FC and Brentford and spent time as assistant to Scotland boss George Burley before becoming manager of Inverness Caledonian Thistle in January 2009. Though relegated in his first half-season, Butcher won an immediate return to the SPL and over the next three seasons established them in the top flight, finishing fourth in 2013. A move to Hibernian in November 2013 was less successful, ending in dismissal after relegation to the Scottish Championship. After a year away, Butcher was appointed manager of Newport in April 2015.
