Chisnall joined United straight from school in April 1958, just two months after the Munich air disaster claimed the lives of eight Busby Babes. After steady progress through the youth and reserve team ranks, Chisnall made his league debut in December 1961 away to Everton. It was a rude introduction to senior football - the Reds lost 5-1.
His best campaign - he clocked up 28 appearances in 1963/64, scoring eight goals - turned out to be his last for United. On the first-team fringes following the signing of Denis Law and the emergence of a young George Best, Chisnall was given the option by Matt Busby - to stay and compete for his place, or take up an offer from Bill Shankly.
He opted for the latter but made only a handful of appearances in three years at Liverpool. Chisnall then moved on to Southend United, where he was a regular from 1967 to 1971, before finishing his career with Stockport County in 1972 at the age of only 29.
