57 10st (1982)

As a schoolboy he starred for Foxwood School and Leeds City Boys, in the same team as Martin Dickinson. He had a fairytale start to his Leeds career, scoring the only goal of the game, when he came on as a substitute at the age of seventeen and continued to a have the happy knack of scoring in his early days with United. He was capped by England Youth in 1980-81 and was part of the team that won the European Youth Championship, but he lost form in a struggling Leeds team and, after temporarily playing in midfield, he was exchanged for Andy Ritchie with Brighton and Hove Albion in March 1983. It was a good move for both players and clubs as Ritchie was popular at Elland Road and Connor became a big favourite at Brighton. He won an England Under-Twenty-One cap as an over-age player on 11th November 1986, at London Road, Peterborough and scored England's goal in a 1-1 draw with Yugoslavia in his only representative game. He was top-scorer for three consecutive seasons for the Seagulls. After one hundred and fifty-three League starts and three substitute appearances had produced fifty-one goals, he returned to the First Division in June 1987 when Portsmouth signed him for 200,000. He scored fourteen League goals in forty-two starts and six games from the bench before he left them for Third Division Swansea City in a 150,000 deal in August 1990. He scored six goals in thirty-nine League appearances before teaming up with ex-Leeds players Mark Aizlewood, David Rennie and Mark Gavin at Bristol City for 190,000 in September 1991. A broken leg curtailed his career at Ashton Gate, where he finished with one goal from sixteen League games. He was loaned back to Swansea in November 1992, making three appearance, without scoring, and had a spell with GM Vauxhall Conference team, Yeovil Town in January 1994, where he made six starts and eight games as a substitute in the League and one game as a substitute in the F.A. Cup, without scoring. When his playing days were over, he became Football in the Community coach at Swindon Town. He moved to the same post at Bristol Rovers which was where he first linked up with John Ward who promoted him to coach. When Ward moved from Rovers to Bristol City, Terry followed and they were back together at their third Nationwide League club at Wolverhampton Wanderers. He was appointed as reserve team coach in the summer of 1999, and given the task of guiding the club's youngsters across the bridge that spans youth and senior football. He served as coach under a succession of Managers at Molineux until he was promoted to be Mick McCarthy's Assistant Manager in August 2008, a position he still holds.
