From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jimmy Trotter was a football player and, later, manager.

Trotter's playing career began with Bury from where he joined Sheffield Wednesday in 1923. He scored 108 times, including five in one game against Portsmouth, in 150 league matches before joining Torquay United in 1930. He scored 26 goals in his first season at Plainmoor before losing his place due to a knee injury. He moved to Watford in the 1932–33 season but retired as a player after only a few games.

Trotter had originally joined Charlton as a trainer twenty two years earlier under Jimmy Seed, but after Seed's sacking he was appointed manager in 1956, although he was unable to prevent relegation that season in 1957. In the following season, Trotter came close to taking the Addicks back into the top flight, but lost 4–3 to Blackburn Rovers on the final day of the season, when a draw would have seen Charlton promoted. The remaining seasons under Trotter's charge saw finishes of eighth, seventh and tenth before he was fired in 1961 after just one victory in twelve games.
