Early life

Born in Singapore, Butcher spent most of his childhood in Lowestoft, Suffolk, where he attended Lowestoft Grammar School (now known as Ormiston Denes Academy) and met his future wife Rita. He turned down the chance to join Norwich City youth team, as like his father he was a fan of Ipswich Town – Norwich's fiercest rivals.[1]

Playing career

Ipswich Town

Butcher made his debut for Ipswich against Everton in the First Division on 15 April 1978 and over the next eight seasons would establish himself as the club's top central defender, combining leadership with great aerial ability and courage. This was soon noticed by England manager Ron Greenwood who gave him his debut in a friendly against Australia in 1980.[2]

In 1981, Butcher was part of the Ipswich side that won the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson and came close to their first League title since 1962, though they were pipped at the post by Aston Villa.


In 1986, Butcher left Ipswich when they were relegated, and became one of the first 'English invasion' players to join Scottish club Rangers following the appointment of Graeme Souness as manager. Souness, the former Liverpool player, paid Ipswich £725,000 for him in July 1986.[3]

As captain, he led them to three League titles in four seasons, plus two Scottish League Cups.

In November 1987 he broke his leg during a Scottish Premier Division fixture against Aberdeen, which ruled him out for the rest of the season. Before he was injured, Butcher was close to signing a £1million return to England with Manchester United, but his injury saw the transfer cancelled and United manager Alex Ferguson signed Norwich City's Steve Bruce instead.[4]

In April 1988 Butcher was convicted of disorderly conduct and breach of the peace due to his behaviour in an Old Firm match in November 1987.[5] He was fined £250.[6] In October 1988 Butcher was the subject of a police investigation when he kicked the referee's room door off its hinges after a match at Pittodrie. No criminal charges were brought, but the SFA fined Butcher £1500.[6][7]

His last Rangers game came in September 1990, in a 2–1 league defeat against Dundee United. His performance in that match was dismal and largely blamed on both of the opposition's goals, leading to him being dropped from the side.

Coventry City

Leeds United manager Howard Wilkinson was soon in talks with Graeme Souness about bringing Butcher back south of the border, but when Butcher did depart from Ibrox it was in a £400,000 deal to become player-manager of Coventry City on 15 November 1990.[4] One of his first games as Coventry manager was against the Leeds side he had come close to signing for, holding them to a 1–1 league draw at Highfield Road on 24 November.[8] Other promising early results included a thrilling 5–4 home win over cup holders Nottingham Forest in the Football League Cup fourth round on 28 November. However, their quest for the League Cup ended in the quarter-finals on 23 January 1991 when they were beaten 1–0 at home by eventual winners Sheffield Wednesday. Six days later their FA Cup was ended in a fourth round replay defeat by Southampton[9]

Butcher made six league appearances for the Sky Blues as they finished 16th in the 1990–91 First Division and then retired as a player. Coventry made a decent start to the 1991–92 season, crushing Luton Town 5–0 in their second league game and achieving a shock 2–1 away win over defending league champions Arsenal, as well as a 1–0 home win over local rivals Aston Villa-[10] to occupy sixth place in the league by the end of September, putting them ahead of more fancied teams including Liverpool and Everton.[11] However, their form over the next two months was less impressive, and by the end of November they had fallen to 13th place.[12] A 2–1 home defeat by Tottenham Hotspur on New Year's Day 1992 saw them enter the new year in 15th place, six points clear of the relegation zone.[13]

He was dismissed on 6 January 1992 after just over a year as Coventry City manager, being replaced by his recently appointed assistant Don Howe.

Later career

He re-registered himself as a player in August 1992, when he signed for Sunderland – founder members of the new Division One, which was the second tier of English football following the creation of the new FA Premier League. He played 38 times for the Wearside club in 1992–93, becoming player-manager following the dismissal of manager Malcolm Crosby in January 1993 and securing their Division One survival by a single place. He never played again for the club and was sacked on 26 November 1993 after a disappointing start to the 1993–94 season saw them battling against relegation once again – with the battle being won under Butcher's successor Mick Buxton.[14]

Butcher then played three games for Clydebank before finally retiring as a player.

International career

Butcher's impressive performances for Ipswich were noticed by England manager Ron Greenwood who gave him his debut in a friendly against Australia on 31 May 1980, when he was 21 years old. He won his second cap 10 months later in a 2–1 defeat against Spain (also a friendly).

In 1982, Butcher was the youngest member of the back four which featured at the World Cup in Spain. He became a regular member of the national side at this stage and remained England's first choice centre back for the rest of the decade, playing in the 1986 World Cup. In that tournament he played in the match against Argentina where Diego Maradona passed 5 English players before scoring the 'goal of the century'.[15]

A broken leg meant that Butcher was not in the England side which exited after the group games at the 1988 European Championship while manager Robson was forced to rely on an inexperienced defensive partnership of Tony Adams and Mark Wright.

While playing for England in a vital World Cup qualifier in Sweden in September 1989, Butcher suffered a deep cut to his forehead early in the game. Butcher had some impromptu stitches inserted by the physiotherapist and, swathed in bandages, continued playing.[16] His constant heading of the ball – unavoidable when playing in the centre of defence – disintegrated the bandages and reopened the cut to the extent that his white England shirt was red with blood by the end of the game.[17] This match is often used when referencing Butcher even today.

England made the semi-finals of the 1990 World Cup with Butcher at the helm of a slightly more cautious back five (Butcher with Wright and Des Walker in the centre, plus full backs Stuart Pearce and – initially – Gary Stevens, later Paul Parker); he also took over the captaincy after an injury ended Bryan Robson's tournament prematurely. After the World Cup, Butcher retired from international football with 77 caps and three goals to his name over a period of 10 years, during which he had appeared in most senior English national games.

Managerial career

Coventry City

He left Rangers on 15 November 1990 to become player-manager of Coventry City (as successor to John Sillett), at one month short of 32 he was the youngest manager in the Football League on his appointment.

Under Sillett, Coventry had won the FA Cup in 1987 and finished as high as seventh in the First Division in 1989, but a dismal start to the 1990–91 season had seen Coventry fall back into the relegation battle that had been all too familiar occurrence at Highfield Road since Coventry first reached the top flight in 1967. With Butcher's appointment as manager, Coventry were intent on returning to their winning ways.

The early signs were promising. Butcher steered Coventry to 16th place and safety in 1990–91, and they entered 1992 in a secure 13th place, so it was something of a surprise on 6 January 1992 when Butcher was sacked as manager.

Butcher had played six league games for Coventry in the 1990–91 season before announcing his retirement as a player.


It was to be 13 months before Butcher returned to football, when in February 1993 he was named manager of Sunderland, re-registering himself as a player, some two years after his last game. He achieved survival at the end of the 1992–93 season, but was sacked the following December.


In October 2001, he became assistant to Eric Black at Motherwell in the Scottish Premier League, taking over from Black a year later as the club was forced to deal with severe financial difficulties, which have since largely abated and Butcher has been praised by the club's supporters and media for his performance under those difficult circumstances. Motherwell reached the 2005 Scottish League Cup final, where his old team Rangers defeated them 5–1.


After being linked with a possible move to Sydney FC for several weeks, he was announced as their new head coach on 17 May 2006,[18] signing a two-year contract. On 7 February 2007, Terry Butcher was sacked by Sydney FC after being knocked out of the finals series with a 3–2 aggregate loss to the Newcastle Jets.[19]


On 30 March 2007, he was appointed as assistant coach at Partick Thistle.[20] However, this was to be a short lived appointment as he became the manager of Brentford on 24 April 2007[21] (he officially took up the role on 7 May 2007).

After a poor run of results, including only 5 wins in 23 matches, and under increasing pressure from the fans who had been chanting the name of former boss Martin Allen, he left Brentford on 11 December 2007.[22]


Butcher was named as World Cup 2010 qualifying campaign. Butcher still harboured resentment for Maradona's Hand of God goal against England 22 years earlier. So in the days leading up to a friendly against Argentina, managed by Diego Maradona, Butcher's views on Maradona were a talking points in the media. Butcher said in interviews that Maradona was a cheat and a liar, and he would be happy to see him lose. Scotland lost the game 1–0. When Maradona was asked about what Butcher had said about him, his response was, "Who is Butcher?"[23]


The Inverness team celebrate winning the First Division title in May 2010 at the Caledonian Stadium. (Butcher is to the left of the stage.)

On 27 January 2009, Butcher was appointed manager of Inverness Caledonian Thistle, signing an 18-month contract.[24] Butcher was joined in Inverness by Maurice Malpas as his assistant manager. In May 2009, Inverness were relegated from the Scottish Premier League. In November 2009 George Burley was sacked as Scotland manager and at the same time Butcher left by mutual consent.

After a bad start to the 2009/10 First Division league campaign, Butcher managed to turn things around for Inverness. The turning point many see as being the win against his former club, Motherwell, in the cup. By the end of March, Butcher had guided his club from 16 points behind league leaders Dundee, to 4 points ahead and top of the Scottish First Division. He was awarded the "Irn Bru Phenomenal" manager of the month award for March.[25] Inverness won the Irn Bru First Division on 21 April after Dundee were beaten 1–0 by Raith Rovers clinching Inverness's return to the Scottish Premier League.

As part of the push for promotion in 2009/10, ICT went on an unbeaten away run in the league that continued through the entire 2010 calendar year, culminating in a 1–1 draw against Hearts at Tynecastle on 18 December.[26] In April 2010 his contract was extended to the end of the 2011/12 season.[27] Terry Butcher was a very influential figure at Inverness Caledonian Thistle, notably in the SPL 2010–11 season where they finished 7th, narrowly missing out on a top 6 finish. Butcher was inducted to the Scottish Football Hall of Fame in November 2011.[28]

In 2012/13 season Butcher received a Manager of a month award for a second time in November, along with two Inverness players Aaron Doran and Billy McKay,[29] having receiving it in 2010/11 season in October.[30] This was explained due to winning three win, including Celtic[31] and a draw despite losing 5–1 against Motherwell[32] and he led the club into second place by the end of 2012. Butcher expressed his "delight" with the club staying in second place and also pleased with the defenders, due to becoming more prominent than his free-scoring forward line.[33]

In January 2013, Butcher rejected an offer to manage Barnsley,[34] having been linked to succeed Keith Hill.[35] After rejecting Barnsley, Butcher explained that one of his reasons for staying was his belief that the club could make history[36] and that he was happy to continue his stay in Scotland.[37] His decision to stay was greeted with relief by recent signing Daniel Devine.[38]
Butcher's efforts in guiding Inverness to their Top 6 finish were recognised when he was nominated in the 4-man shortlist for PFA Scotland Manager of the Year.[39]


On 5 November 2013, Inverness confirmed that they had received an official approach from fellow Premiership side Hibernian to replace former manager Pat Fenlon with Butcher.[40] On 11 November, Hibernian reached a compensation deal with Inverness for Terry Butcher to move to the club, alongside assistant manager Maurice Malpas.[41] Butcher agreed to a three-year contract, and his appointment was confirmed by the club on 12 November.[42]

A week after Butcher's departure, Inverness supporters responded to his departure with "Terry who?" in the match against St. Johnstone.[43] On 2 January 2014, Butcher won his first Edinburgh derby managerial career, as they won 2-1.[44] Butcher failed to sign any players in mid-January until signing Daniel Boateng, Danny Haynes and Duncan Watmore on the last day of the transfer window.[45][46]

As the months progressed, Hibernian's results went badly. His predecessor, Pat Fenlon, had left the team in a mid-table position, but a series of bad performances led to Butcher apologizing and supporters describing his tactics as "gutless", "passionless" and "clueless".[47][48] Hibernian dropped to the bottom half in the league, putting them at risk of relegation.[49] Defeats in the bottom half for Hibernian led Butcher to cancel players' day-off.[50] Further defeats to Ross County and Kilmarnock placed Hibernian eleventh place and facing the play-offs to keep their Premiership place.[51]

On 25 May 2014 Hibernian were relegated to the Scottish Championship, losing a two-leg playoff against Hamilton Academical.[52] After the match, Butcher described Hibernian relegation as his "darkest day in football".[53] Butcher was criticised by James McPake, who Butcher replaced as captain with Liam Craig, for not selecting him to play despite being fit.[54][55] After a meeting with new chief executive Leeann Dempster to discuss Hibs' future plans, Butcher was sacked by the club on 10 June 2014.[56] They were also rumors of Butcher losing the dressing room and then asking players to leave the club in the January transfer window, only to use them back to help the club survive relegation.[57]

Butcher interviewed for the vacant managerial position at Motherwell in December 2014, but then asked not to be considered for the position.[58]

Newport County

On 30 April 2015 Butcher was appointed manager of Welsh club Newport County in League Two.[59] Butcher took up the role at the end of the 2014-15 season in preparation for the 2015-16 season. Butcher was sacked on 1 October 2015 with Newport bottom of league two after gaining just five points from the first ten matches of the 2015–16 season.[60]

Other activities

While living in Suffolk Butcher had a chain of insurance brokers which were later acquired by the Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. Butcher has appeared as a pundit for England matches on BBC Radio Five Live, Europa League matches on Five and on Setanta Sports' SPL coverage. Butcher also worked for BBC Sport during the 2006 World Cup.

Butcher consistently raised concerns over the sum impact of David Beckham's performances for and involvement with the England national football team, most notably during discussions concerning team and squad selection questions for the 2006 World Cup and Euro 2008 qualification campaign.[61][62]

Butcher is a fan of the British Heavy Metal band Iron Maiden[63] and is friends with bassist and founding member Steve Harris.

He is a supporter of the Conservative Party.[64]
