Emile Heskey

Professional Footballer & Former England International

Emile Heskey is a former professional English footballer who had a glittering career and most recently played for English football club, Bolton Wanderers. An inspiring figure available for a range of charity events, after dinner speeches and public appearances, Emile is a personal and insightful sportsman who has lot of offer both on and off the field.

In his career, Emile made more than 500 appearances in the Football League and Premier League over an 18-year career, whilst he also managed to represent England 62 times including during two World Cup campaigns.

Born in Leicester, Emile started his career with Leicester City and made his debut with them in 1995 having quickly progressed through their youth system after joining them aged 17. He soon became a regular with the team and made 30 appearances for them in his debut season, no doubt helping the team get back to the top tier of English football in the process as they were promoted at the end of the season.

After winning the League Cup in 1997 and 2000, he made a big £11 million move to Liverpool in 2000, which, at the time, was the record transfer fee paid by them. With Liverpool, he won multiple honours including the FA Cup in 2001.

He moved to Birmingham City in 2004 and after their relegation from the Premier League signed for Wigan Athletic for a club record £5.5 million fee in 2006. He then signed for Aston Villa in 2009 before signing for Australian A-League side Newcastle Jets and so has many great insights and experiences to share from the top level of world sport.
