† Appearances (goals)

Peter Morris (born 8 November 1943 in Stockbridge) is an English former professional footballer and manager. During his career he made over 300 appearances for Mansfield Town and over 200 for Ipswich Town. His one goal for Norwich was scored against title-chasing QPR on 17 April 1976, a date that will live in infamy amongst Rangers fans of a certain age. He was also a manager with numerous league and non-league clubs, and notably was player-manager when Mansfield Town were promoted to the Football League Second Division in 1976-77.
