CANTWELL Noel

28 February 1932

NOEL CANTWELL (1952-1960) Born this day Cork, Republic of Ireland


Swashbuckling, attack-minded full-back whose 17 international appearances for his native Eire while with Hammers bore ample testimony to his skill. Signed from Cork Athletic in 1952, he joined a veritable colony of fellow-countrymen at Upton Park. Made his initial debut against Colchester United in a 3-2 victory in the Essex Professional Cup on the 13 November 1952. Noel made his League bow 5 months later against Fulham at Craven Cottage also in a 3-2 victory on the 6th April 1953. Attracted the attention of the Eire selectors and was capped against Luxembourg in 1953. His classic partnership with John Bond formed one of the best full-back pairings ever seen at the club and was a major factor in the promotion-winning team of 1958. Transferred to Manchester United for £29,000 (a record at that time for a full-back). He later went into management with Coventry City, New England Tea Men in the North American Soccer League and two spells with Peterborough United before becoming a publican at Stamford, Lincolnshire after retiring from the game. Died: 8 September 2005 (aged 73)
