Biographical Text

A Scottish schoolboy international, Crawford joined West Bromwich Albion as a junior and worked through the various teams to earn a full contract in December 1960.

He had to be content mainly with reserve team football at the Hawthorns though and only made ten league appearances for them, until moving to Exeter City in July 1967.

It proved to be a good move for both club and player as Crawford went on to become one of the mainstays of the Grecians team right through until his final season at St James’ Park in 1973-74. This included being voted the Exeter City Player of the Year for 1970-71.

He left Exeter to sign for Kidderminster Harriers and remained with them as a player until 1976-77, whereupon he assisted Harriers in a coaching capacity.

Campbell has returned to Exeter for former players association events in 2017 and 2019
