I was lucky enough to be a pupil at the Boys' Model school during Eric Trevorrows time there. I found him to be a very good teacher and still an excellent footballer. I remember around 1965/66 Eric could hit either post or the cross bar from 20 yards at a whim.

Eric Trevorrow is my uncle - was he the coach of
the N.Ireland under 21team?

Hi Patricia,
I don't have any record of him being involved in coaching in the NI U21 set-up. Possibly coached one of the other junior teams. I'll have a look and see if I can find anything.
