More title glory followed in 1967, but success was tinged with sadness for Herd, who suffered a broken leg in November 1966, shortly after scoring a hat-trick against three different goalkeepers in a 5-0 win over Sunderland. The injury would ultimately limit his first-team chances.

Although he missed the final, he was awarded a European Cup winner’s medal for his part in United’s triumphant campaign in 1968, but two months later he moved to Stoke City. He later turned his hand to management and enjoyed spells with Waterford and Lincoln City.
