One of Colin Murphy's first signings as City manager, centre-back
Trevor Peake first appeared at Sincil Bank with the Nuneaton Borough
team that was thrashed 6-0 by the Imps in a 1976 FA Cup tie.
An England semi-professional international whilst with Nuneaton,
Trevor joined the Imps in the summer of 1979 for a fee of £15,000
and went on to miss just a handful of games over the following four seasons.
A highly skilful centre-half, he established a strong partnership
with Steve Thompson at the heart of City's defence at a time when
they were one of the best teams in the lower divisions.
Trevor was also a popular player amongst the supporters, so much so
that he was named "Player Of The Season" in his first two
seasons at Sincil Bank whilst his form in the 1980/81 promotion
season saw him named in the Division Four PFA representative side.
His final season with the Imps saw him receive PFA recognition as
well and it came as no surprise when he secured himself a move to the
top-flight of English football in the summer of 1983 with Coventry
City paying £100,000 for his services.
Trevor made a total of 171 League appearances for the Imps prior to
his move and he would go on to spend a further eight years at
During that time he picked up an FA Cup winners' medal as the Sky
Blues upset the odds to lift the silverware in 1987, beating
Tottenham Hotspur 3-2 in a memorable clash at Wembley Stadium.
After well over 300 League and cup appearances for Coventry, Trevor
made a £100,000 move to Luton Town in August 1991 with the
Hatters struggling in the top flight.
He went on to become the Luton skipper but couldn't prevent them
relegation in his first season at Kenilworth Road. As such, all but
one of his League games for the Hatters came in the second tier of
His solitary outing outside the top two levels since he left the Imps
was a record-breaking one, however, with his substitute appearance
for Luton against Wrexham in September 1997 making him their oldest
ever League player at the age of 40 years and 222 days.
In a distinguished career, Trevor made a total of 627 Football League
appearances, scoring 13 times and after he eventually hung up his
playing boots, he became reserve team coach at Luton before returning
to Coventry as first team coach.
In between the departure of Roland Nilsson and the appointment of
Gary McAllister as Coventry manager, Trevor, together with former
goalkeeper Steve Ogrizovic took charge of first team affairs for one
match whilst in May 2002 he was appointed as their chief scout.
Trevor left Coventry in March 2003 before joining the Academy set up
at Leicester City.
