John Beresford was born in Sheffield on 4 Sept 1966. During his footballing career he played for the following clubs Barnsley, Birmingham, Man City Newcastle, Portsmouth & Southampton. He is most famous for his Newcastle United spell between 1992 and 1998, with his attacking tendencies being crucial to “the Entertainers”. During this time Beresford formed a formidable partnership with the other full back, his doppelgänger Waren Barton. Beresford is also remembered by some for missing his spot kick in the 1992 FA Cup semi-final penalty shootout against Liverpool while playing for Portsmouth.
Beresford won two England ‘B’ caps in 1994, against Northern Ireland ‘B’ and the Republic of Ireland ‘B’.
John is now available for “after dinner” speaking engagements, for Lunches & Golf Days.
