Trevor Anthony Putney (born 9 April 1960, Harold Hill) is a former professional footballer.

Putney began his career with Ipswich Town, for whom he made 103 appearances and was voted the club's player of the year by the supporters in 1984. He then joined the small band of players who have played for both Ipswich and Norwich City, when he joined the Canaries in the summer of 1986 in a player exchange deal that saw John Deehan join Ipswich.

Putney spent three seasons with Norwich, making 100 appearances, before joining Middlesbrough for a fee of £300,000 in 1989.

Subsequently, Putney moved to Watford and Leyton Orient, before finishing his career at Colchester United.

He was known as a hard-tackling midfielder, easily distinguishable for his shock of white-blonde hair. After retiring, he was a coach with Romford.

During his playing days, Putney was reputed by his footballing colleagues as a prankster. Kevin Poole, his colleague at Middlesbrough, remembered that he would cut holes in the socks of other players.[1]
