A classic case of early promise unfulfilled, Entwistle played
for the England Youth team before moving on to Bury and Sunderland.
One of Jimmy Adamson's star signings, he contributed very little on

league and non-league clubs.
Carl Horrocks says: I played football with his brother. Wayne
now has a business,he runs a farm in Bury and delivers his meat to
all the local shops.Often you see him with his name emblazened on

Ronan Meyler says: i am a former penfriend of wayne entwistle
who was a fine footballer in his career. i first wrote to him while
he was playing foe leeds and i met him for the first time way back
in late 1988.he was a fine gentleman and was well liked by many
people. but the sadness is he could'nt get mant games as he would
have liked with leeds united but then again he made the right move
to blackpool. he once told me that alan clarke [ then while he was
wayne manager at leeds ] had been fair to him. after that wayne has
enjoyed his career with teams like stockport and wigan. i was lucky
to get to see him play for wigan on his debut against his former
club bolton and he scored a good goal that night. what a fine
player he was.
ian roerts says: i saw wayne play many times for sunderland .i
have to say he was in a team full of promising young players and he
was by far the worst. sorry but true.
Lauren Kate Entwistle says: Wayne is my DAD!!! He is now a D.j,
a meat seller and a gardener. He dosnt like Going on holiday and he
is really stupid.
