Legendary former Norwich City striker Terry Allcock has died aged 88, his family have confirmed.

Allcock played for the Canaries between 1958 and 1969 after signing from Bolton Wanderers, scoring 127 goals in 389 games for the club to become their second-highest goalscorer of all time behind Johnny Gavin.

He played a key role in their famous run to the semi-finals of the 1959 FA Cup, becoming only the third third-tier side in history to achieve the feat.

He was then involved when Norwich won their first major trophy, lifting the League Cup in 1962. The Leeds native still holds the record for goals scored in a season with 37, and was the first winner of the Barry Butler Memorial Trophy.

Allcock also played cricket for Norfolk, appearing as a wicket-keeper in the Minor Counties Championship between 1959 and 1975.

A statement from Allcock Family Funeral Services on Facebook said: "The best dad, grandad and great grandad passed away peacefully in his sleep last night.

"We are totally heartbroken but incredibly proud of the life he led. He will be deeply missed by all his family and friends."

A statement from Norwich City, who inducted him into their hall of fame in 2002, said: "The thoughts of everybody at Norwich City are with Terry’s family and friends at this deeply sad time."
