Brian played for Everton, Cardiff and Newport, before managing the Somerset Park side in the early 1970s (arguably their finest period). His Everton career was impressive. After making his debut in the 1955/56 season, he played in over 300 games, mainly as full-back, and was part of the team that came back from 3-2 down to beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-2 in the 1966 FA Cup final. While with Cardiff, he starred in the team that reached the semi-final of the European Cup Winners Cup and played in more than 150 games for the club. He moved to Newport in 1971 and became manager there in 1973. Today, Brian Harris scouts for Everton in the South West and lives in Chepstow.
