Trevor Anderson (born 3 March 1951) is a former Northern Irish football forward and manager.

Playing career[edit]

Born in Belfast, Anderson began his playing career at Portadown before signing for Manchester United in October 1972.[1] After only appearing in 19 League games for the club he moved to Swindon Town and made his début on 5 November 1974. He scored the only goal in this game, a 1–0 win against Chesterfield.[1] He was the club's top scorer for the 1975–76 season with 15 goals.

He moved to Peterborough in December 1977 before returning to Northern Ireland to play for Linfield.

A Northern Ireland international, he made his début against Cyprus in 1973 and went on to achieve 22 caps, 12 whilst a Swindon player.[1]

Management career[edit]

Anderson managed Linfield from 1992 to 1997, winning a number of honours including two Irish Football League titles and two Irish Cups.[2] Anderson left the club in 1997 to take up the post as Director of Football at Newry Town. The club were a division below Linfield but had a reputation for spending big money, by Irish League standards, and the club won promotion under Anderson's direction.[3] He subsequently managed Ards, leading the club to promotion in 2001.[4] He went on to manage Dundalk.
