Sir Trevor Brooking is undoubtedly one of the most recognisable names within English football over the last couple of decades, having held pretty much any role it is possible within the game. Starting as a player, and progressing onto a manager, pundit, commentator and finally a role with the English FA as Director of Football Development, Brooking’s knowledge and expertise in the game is unrivalled- a position which makes him ideal as an after dinner speaker and football speaker.
Enjoying all his success at West Ham where he progressed through the Youth ranks, Brooking amassed an impressive 528 appearances and 88 goals over a 17 year stint. Playing for his country 47 times, Brooking scored on 5 occasions. Retiring from football in 1984, he briefly undertook the manager role with his beloved Hammers in 2003. Due to ill health forcing Glenn Roeder out for the end of the 2002-03 season, and with Brooking sitting on the West Ham board, he stepped into the breach. Despite his best efforts, they were unfortunately relegated with a record high number of points.
Averaging a win percentage of 64.29% for the 14 games he undertook, Brooking was a real fan favourite. Being acclaimed as 'the best manager West Ham never had'; this metaphorical accolade makes Brooking a favourite with the public, especially West Ham fans, as an after dinner speaker and sports speaker. An eloquent sports speaker, at the end of 2003 Brooking was named as the Director of Football at the Football Association- a role that he still holds to this day. As well as his role with the FA and as an accomplished after dinner speaker and football speaker, Trevor Brooking is also well known for dabbling with commentary. Having featured on the BBCs Match of the Day as well as having his voice conveyed within the Pro Evolution Soccer video game series, Brooking is up in the highest ranks of football immortality.
His extensive knowledge and experiences across football help Trevor Brooking to deliver clear, informative and enlightening speeches as a football speaker and after dinner speaker. His recognisable persona and identity mean that even those with limited football knowledge will be aware of his successes within the sport. The exemplary professional and a fantastic role model to everyone on the perks of hard work, Trevor Brooking would be an exceptional addition to any event.
