Born in Lambeth, England in 1959, Lawrie Sanchez was a highly accomplished midfielder, who played over 530 league games for Reading and Wimbledon.

His long playing career included a number of fantastic highlights, including scoring the winning goal in the 1988 FA Cup Final against Liverpool and representing Northern Ireland.
