Chris had been signed by Ron Atkinson after making his name at Sheffield Wednesday and Sunderland.
Later, in 1991, Chris was back at Hillsborough and found himself as the Owls goalie when Sheffield Wednesday beat Manchester United 1-0 in the League Cup final of that year.
Chris tried his hand at management. First at Leyton Orient, then Hartlepool and finally back at Sheffield Wednesday.
He is now Chief Executive at Chesterfield football club.
