You have your wires crossed. Chopper was Ron Harris.

Then you either came from a funny place or you misremember. Google Hunter's name with Chopper and do the same with Harris and Chopper.

In fact if you google Norman Hunter and Chopper, all the results mentioning chopper are for Chopper Harris because Hunter was Bite your legs which, strangely, appears to surprise you.

Was it south of Crewe? If so therein lies your problem. It always has been Norman Bite Yer Legs Hunter.

During my time in the forces...lots of Leeds United supporters...it was Norman "bites yer legs".
Sports comentators likewise referred to him in a similar fashion. Never heard of him, by anyone, referred to as "chopper,".

We had a wood- and metalwork teacher at school who was called Ron Harris. He had been there for years by the time I was at the school, and always known as Chopper, even though it was a good few years after "the other Ron Harris" had finished playing top flight football (although I think he still turned out for a lower-division team, we still saw his name in the papers every now and then...). In my naivete I assumed his nickname was because he had access to all the sharp chopping tools in the workshop, it wasn't til I was in the sixth form that the penny dropped about his more famous namesake!
