Jabba's Comments

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 faitful!

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
