In our Fossils & Foxes updates you can always look up every single first team player in the history of this football club and the catalog is now under construction to the more and broader information site as we add more information day by day.

The latest players to see their facelift is Kasper Schmeichel, Kevin Reed, Lewis Brunt, Ernie Hine and Frank Worthington as information links are made on photos, videos, facts and stats.

This list of players is updated whenever a player makes his full league debut for the club. The latest to do so is Lewis Brunt coming on against Spurs a few weeks back. Delighted to see the youngster who came from Aston Villa in the summer getting his break.

Kevin Reed is another player part of the same group as Lewis Brunt with only one senior league outing for the club coming down from the stands to fill the gap on the sub bench. Jock Wallace was in charge and the opponent was Wrexham. Reed got on and was never defeated as a Leicester player as he was released at the end of the season and played for different clubs in and around Leicestershire.

Kasper Schmeichel has reached a new milestone in his life at Leicester and hopefully will carry on as his days of shotstopping looks far from a close. He has passed 400 league games for Leicester and in total competitions played 477 which is more than any other goalkeeper in the clubs history.

He is at this moment on the same league appearances as Mark Wallington and will in the game vs. Watford pass the mark and be alone with the league appearance record for a goalkeeper. His next push must be to pass Adam Black who are current holder of that record with 528 league games in total.

The next player to highlight is Ernie Hine who is one of few to have played for England in the early years of the clubs existance. Hine joined from Barnsley in 1926 and became a key player in a team that eventually ended runners-up in the league 1928/29. Hine played 247 league games and scored 148 goals and on a ratio higher than Jamie Vardy. Later playing for Man Utd and Huddersfield before returning to Barnsley and finish career where it all started.

Our last player to pinpoint is Frank Worthington. His presence at Leicester was huge and he had a presence both on and off the field that represented the club in full over those seasons, being flamboyant on it and also having a party off it. Frank had his best years in the game playing for Leicester but impressive at Southampton at the age of 35 ending runners-up in the league together with two other former foxes Dennis Rofe and Peter Shilton.

You will always be on the right track to find former and current foxes as you crawl our site for every possible information.
