Nick Cusack, a classy operator and underrated part of each Fulham side he played in during three years at Craven Cottage, had amassed considerable professional experience in England and Scotland before he signed for the Whites as a striker in November 1994. But his versatility and exceptional reading of the game saw him play all over the park for Fulham, operating up front, in midfield and defence before Micky Adams masterfully converted him into a sweeper. He made 136 appearances for Fulham, playing 46 games in all competitions during the club’s incredible promotion from the Third Division in 1996/97, before following Adams to Swansea City, where he had a spell as manager in 2002. A law graduate, Cusack served as the Professional Football Association representative at several of the sides he played for and, having chaired the organisation during his player career, now works for them full-time.
