Johnny Newman (born 13 December 1933 in Hereford) is an English former footballer and manager. Newman played as a central defender, beginning his career with Birmingham City in 1951 where he won the Second Division and was on the losing side in a FA Cup final[1]. He moved on to Leicester City and then to Plymouth Argyle, for whom he made over 300 appearances between 1960 and 1967. In 1966 he played for the Football League which beat the Irish Football League 12-0 at Home Park; the Football League team contained seven of the 1966 World Cup winning team[2]. He then moved on to Devon rivals Exeter City, where he was made player-manager in 1969, continuing in the manager's role after he retired from playing in 1972. He moved onto Grimsby Town gaining promotion to the Third Division[1], and had a largely unsuccessful eleven months in charge at Derby County, before returning to his home-town to manage Hereford United.
