Ian Marshall

Ex-Leicester City Player

Former Everton and Leicester City player Ian Marshall retired from football in the early 2000’s and has gone on to work as a dedicated sports speaker appearing at sporting events and touring on the after dinner speaker circuit.

Playing for the Football League Everton, side Ian Marshall made his name as a football speaker and player when he joined Oldham Athletic in 1988 where he would remain for five years and scored an impressive 50 goals in less than 200 appearances. Marshall moved to the Premier League in 1993 leaving Oldham for Ipswich Town for £700,000 where he improved on his previous performance by scoring 36 goals in only 90 appearances.

Marshall’s success continued and in 2002 he captained Blackpool to victory at The Millennium Stadium of the LDV Vans Trophy against Cambridge. After this win Ian Marshall chose to leave his life as a striker behind and has gone on to work as a specialist sports speaker appearing at events for many of his previous clubs as well as after dinner speaker functions for the Football League and the Premier League.

Upon retirement Marshall established himself as a football speaker and coach and relocated to Canada where he opened the Ian Marshall Soccer Academy where he trains future players.
