Who is Iain Dunn?

Iain George William Dunn, was a professional footballer who played for, amongst other clubs, York City, Chesterfield, Peterborough United, Scarborough, Goole, Huddersfield Town and Scunthorpe United. He also represented England at under-19 level. Whilst in his second spell at Chesterfield he helped them reach the FA Cup semi final in 1997, playing as a substitute in the quarter final tie against Wrexham. However, he didn't play in the semi final itself, as Chesterfield ultimately lost to Middlesbrough after a replay.

Dunn was the first player in British football to score a golden goal. He achieved this feat in the Auto Windscreens Shield for Huddersfield Town versus Lincoln City on 30 November 1994. Huddersfield won 3-2 in extra time. Dunn was later presented with a commemorative trophy.

Always a cult figure, Dunn polarised fans' opinions; despite this he was voted Huddersfield Town's all-time cult hero by the club's fans in an August 2004 poll for the BBC's Football Focus programme, and he has recently been included in the fans' all-time 100 favourite players.

His cult status amongst Huddersfield fans was often aired with the popular terrace chant:

Iain Dunn,

Iain Dunn,

Iain, Iain Dunn

He's got no hair,

But we don't care.

Iain, Iain Dunn.
