Centre forward Terence McGhee Peacock was born in Hull and joined the City groundstaff in his teenage years, turning professional in December 1952. His progress was hampered by having to complete his National Service and when he was demobilised in August 1955 he had already exhibited impressive goalscoring capabilities in City’s Reserves and A team. He was selected to start two league games in the early weeks of the 1955/56 season, while both games saw goals from Brian Bulless, Peacock himself did not register and he was not selected again for the Tigers, especially when ex-England striker Stan Mortensen was signed a few weeks later. He saw out the season playing for City’s Reserves.
In August 1956 Peacock joined Queens Park Rangers and when he made into the R’s first team in December 1956 he scored in each of his first 3 Division Three South starts. He was picked regularly for the rest of the season but added only one further goal. He started the 1957/58 season still at QPR but made just two starts in September before chipping an ankle bone and missing three months of football. When he returned to fitness he could not break back into the QPR first team and in the 1958 close season he joined Midland League side Scarborough. His contract with Scarborough was terminated in November 1958 and Peacock retired from football due to injuries.
