Experienced inside forward Horton joined City in 1952 and gave three seasons service to the Tigers during the later years of his career.
Born and raised in Preston, Horton joined his local side prior to World War 2 and turned professional in 1942, but it wasn’t until after the war that he established himself in the North End first team. By the time he moved to Boothferry Park in 1952 he had enjoyed fifteen years service for the Lilywhites.
Horton played for Barrow in 1955/56 season, then in 1956 he dropped into the non-league scene becoming player-manager at Morecambe. He retained that job for five years, before taking the helm at Horwich RMI between 1963 and 1967. He died in 2000 having returned to his home town Preston.
