From 1953 to 1960, Ian Greaves, played for Manchester United. As a "Busby Babe" he won a championship medal (1955-56) and replaced Roger Byrne, killed in the Munich crash, at left-back in the 1958 FA Cup final. Yet Greaves became better known as the manager of five clubs, notably Bolton Wanderers (1974-80).

Greaves won his championship medal as a right-back, initially standing in for the injured Bill Foulkes. Greaves did so well that he kept out Foulkes out for the rest of that season.

Born in Oldham, Greaves was an effective rather than a stylish defender. He played 15 championship games for his medal, altogether making 67 first team appearances for United. A knee injury undermined his form at Old Trafford, and in 1960 he dropped down the leagues to Lincoln City, playing just 11 games during 1960-61. He also played 22 times for Oldham Athletic, before going into management with Huddersfield Town (1968-74).

I think he's about 183 cm tall. On the picture he's second from the left, and fourth from the left is Gregg and he is 183 cm.


Also, his picture is definitely wrong. Ian Greaves:
