Former Nottingham Forest And Liverpool Star Larry Lloyd Passes Away At 75

Former England international and iconic defender Larry Lloyd, known for his standout contributions at Nottingham Forest and Liverpool, has tragically passed away at the age of 75.

Lloyd, a pivotal figure in Nottingham Forest‘s historic back-to-back European Cup victories, has left a lasting legacy in the football world. His passing was confirmed by Forest on Thursday, leaving fans and former teammates mourning his loss.

Beginning his career at Liverpool under the guidance of the legendary Bill Shankly, Lloyd enjoyed significant success, clinching the top division title and a UEFA Cup triumph during his tenure from 1969 to 1974.

After stints at Coventry and successful spells with Forest, Lloyd played a crucial role in Forest’s meteoric rise under manager Brian Clough, lifting the league title in 1978 and consecutive European Cups in 1979 and 1980.

Known for his uncompromising style and partnership with Kenny Burns in defense, Lloyd made over 200 appearances for Forest, solidifying his place in the club’s history as an integral part of their golden era.

Representing England on four occasions from 1971 to 1980, Lloyd’s impact extended beyond the club level, showcasing his talents on the international stage as well.
