The 50-year-old Burnley manager was a no-nonsense defender during his playing days.
The centre-back also spent seven years in North Derbyshire with Chesterfield, where he captained The Spireites to a memorable FA Cup run during the 1996/97 campaign.
In fact, Dyche helped the second division side reach the FA Cup semi-final for the first time in their history; even scoring in a dramatic clash against Middlesbrough at Old Trafford.
When Chesterfield *NEARLY* made the FA Cup final... 🤯— BBC Sport (@BBCSport) April 19, 2020

This cup tie had it all. Extra-time drama, six goals, one red card and a cracking spot-kick from Dyche.
As you can see from the footage below, the 6ft centre-back took a big run up before absolutely walloping the ball down the middle; a strike that left goalkeeper Ben Roberts with no chance between the sticks.
You don't see many players do this nowadays. "Just put your foot through it!"

Unfortunately for Chesterfield and their supporters, John Duncan's side narrowly missed out on a place in the FA Cup final.
Things could have been so different if this goal had not been disallowed when Chesterfield were 2-1 up, but eventually they were beaten in a replay by Boro.
What could have been?
