Paul Beesley is a battling centre-back/left back signed from
Sheffield United in the latter days of Howard Wilkinson's reign at
Elland Road. He was used mainly as defensive cover, a task which he
performed with enthusiasm and commitment, although he was no Paul
Madeley. He moved on to Manchester City after a season and a half at
Leeds. He's went on to Port Vale, where he managed to clock up 12
bookings in a season and earn a date with the FA. After a season
at Blackpool he moved on to Chester, who were relegated to the
GM Vauxhall Conference.
He moved on from Chester to Stalybridge Celtic in October 2001.
Pete says: Paul is currently the kit man at Stockport County. Had a
drink with him the night before the game vs. Rushden & Diamonds
27/09/03. He's a cracking lad with a sharp sense of humour - can put a
few beers away too!
Ste says: Pete is correct about Paul he seemed as though he could
put the beers away whilst he was at leeds, particularly directly
before kick off. Well he was either p****d or a ridiculous excuse for
a professional footballer, he wouldnt have got in my 5 a-side league
never mind the Premier league - gives us all hope though! P.S Nice
weird hair doo.
jake says: 'Beesley for england' was the ironic chant of the leeds
Ste again says: Thanks for that Jake. But those chants were not
ironic - and if they were I dont think that its funny makin a mockery
out of Leeds utds selection system - Beesley should have never been
allowed in leeds never mind our startin 11. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
