Norman Hunter is a British football speaker and ex-player whose unusual nickname, “Bites yer legs” highlighted his strong talent and tacking abilities; a member of the 1966 winning World Cup team Hunter was understudy to England great Bobby Moore.
With a career as a sports speaker and player that began in the early 1960’s Hunter’s career was still in relative infancy when the English team thrashed West Germany in the infamous ’66 World Cup final; though he did not get the opportunity to contribute much to the game Hunter still remembers the moment fondly and in his capacity as a football speaker offers a highly unique insight as both player and witness to the England team’s success.
His professional playing career saw Norman play for fourteen years at Leeds United and, since his retirement in 1982 he has continued to be a prominent part of Leeds’ Football Club; working as an after dinner speaker on behalf of the team and as a football speaker at Leeds United events Norman Hunter has been heralded as one of the greatest players to grace the pitch at Elland road.
In his capacity as an after dinner speaker Norman shares a wealth of anecdotes and behind the scenes stories about his time in both the Leeds and England teams; he is an entertaining and popular sports speaker and has even been contracted by BBC Radio Leeds to provide the commentary on all Leeds home games.
Norman will be remembered by many for his personality both on and off the pitch, his identity epitomised by both his nickname and the story that, upon learning that “Hunter had broken a leg”, Leeds club trainer Lee Cocker asked: “whose is it?” A much sought after football speaker Norman bites yer legs Hunter brings a great deal of entertainment to any event.
