Timeline
Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Peter Doherty
    LATE_ADULTHOOD
  • 1990
    Age 76
    Following his death in 1990, there is a plaque to mark his birthplace in Magherafelt.
    More Details Hide Details It can be found at what is now a barber shop.
  • FORTIES
  • 1958
    Age 44
    He led the country to the 1958 World Cup, reaching the quarter-finals.
    More Details Hide Details He also managed Bristol City. His coaching techniques were revolutionary at the time. He emphasised ball practice and instead of endless laps of the pitch, Doherty suggested volley-ball, "to promote jumping, timing and judgement"; basket-ball, "to encourage split-second decision-making and finding space"; and walking football, "to build up calf muscles". Later life saw him become a scout for Liverpool, helping to unearth such talents as Kevin Keegan.
  • THIRTIES
  • 1949
    Age 35
    He made his final move to Doncaster in 1949, where he assumed the role of player-manager.
    More Details Hide Details He later became manager of Northern Ireland (1951–1962), for whom he had 16 caps as a player.
  • 1945
    Age 31
    During a guest appearance for Port Vale in 1945, he famously went to take a penalty but instead of shooting he laid it off to a team mate who scored.
    More Details Hide Details After the conclusion of the war, he transferred to Derby County, with whom he won the FA Cup, scoring a goal in the final itself. He also went on to play for Huddersfield Town, scoring 33 goals in 83 league appearances. In his autobiography, Len Shackleton wrote of Doherty:
  • TWENTIES
  • 1937
    Age 23
    Doherty won a league championship medal with Manchester City in 1937 and a cup winner's medal with Derby in the 1946 FA Cup Final.
    More Details Hide Details He was inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame in 2002.
  • 1936
    Age 22
    Manchester City started the 1936–37 season poorly, and were in the bottom half of the table until December.
    More Details Hide Details Occasional big wins, including a 6–2 defeat of West Bromwich Albion and a 4–1 defeat of Everton, were mixed with extended barren runs; at one point the club gained just one win in twelve matches. However, Doherty was scoring goals regularly. A goal in a 5–3 Christmas day loss to Grimsby Town was his twelfth of the season. Christmas proved to be a turning point for the club, as a win against Middlesbrough the following day was the start of a long unbeaten run. By April, Manchester City were second in the table, and faced a fixture against Arsenal, league leaders and the dominant club of the period. Doherty scored the first goal in a 2–0 win, and City reached the top of the table. The unbeaten run continued until the end of the season, and City secured their first league championship with a 4–1 win over Sheffield Wednesday. Doherty, with 30 league goals, was the club's leading scorer, helped by a run of eleven goals in seven games as the season drew to a close.
    He joined Manchester City on 19 February 1936 for a then-club record of £10,000.
    More Details Hide Details Blackpool needed the money urgently, and Doherty was summoned from his lunch to report to Bloomfield Road. The Irishman tried hard to persuade Blackpool directors that he did not wish to leave the club, for he was due to marry a local girl and had just bought a new house in the town. The fee was an exceptionally high transfer fee for the period; it came within £1,000 of the British record. Doherty's Manchester City debut, against Preston North End, was not a successful one. Tightly man-marked by Bill Shankly throughout, he failed to make an impact, leading to one catcall from the crowd of "Ten thousand pounds? More like ten thousand cigarette cards". Doherty later described the remainder of his first Manchester City season as "uneventful", but his second was to be anything but.
