Noel Cantwell led Manchseter United to the FA Cup in 1963 and the league championship in 1966-67, and also played 36 times for the Republic of Ireland, scoring 14 goals. Signed by Matt Busby for £29,500 ( a record at the time for a full back), he was touted as a possible replacement for Busby, but his first managerial job was at Coventry and a highly successful tenure at Peterborough followed. Cantwell then headed west to take charge of the New England Teamen in the USA, although he finished back at Peterborough.
