Peter Shilton OBE

England goalkeeping legend Peter Shilton has gained more caps for England than any other player.

He was the youngest player to play for Leicester City at the tender age of 16 – taking over from the equally legendary Gordon Banks.

Throughout his amazing 30 year career, he played for 11 English league clubs through which he accumulated a record of over 1000 League appearances.

In 1977, he joined the newly promoted Nottingham Forest, who went on to shock the footballing world by winning the league title on their return to the top flight. Even bigger success followed as Peter was a big factor in Nottingham Forest winning two successive European Cups.

In his record 125 National appearances, the England team won 66 of their games. He was still playing at international level in the 1990 World Cup at the age 40.

Peter now speaks on both the after dinner and motivational speaking circuits.
