Former professional footballer, Micky Quinn was notorious during his career, involved with no less than nine teams during his seventeen year long career. Now Micky is a sports speaker who covers both football and horse racing and is a recognised voice on UK radio station TalkSPORT.
Starting his career in football in 1979 for Wigan Athletic, Micky went on to score nineteen goals in sixty nine Fourth Division games. Micky guided Wigan into the third division but unfortunately was transferred to Stockport County due to manager Larry Lloyd believing Micky was too inexperienced for Third Division football. Making a name for himself as a regular goal scorer Micky was brought by Joe Royle to join the Second Division team Oldham Athletic.
Spending the majority of his top level career at Portsmouth and Newcastle United, between 1985 and 1992, it was at these two clubs that Micky made the most appearances and scored the most goals. Regularly named as the top goal scorer for the season, he repeatedly impressed with his ability to strike accurately and often. Once the most expensive player to be signed by the Magpies, Micky knew what is meant to work hard and preserve to surpass goals.
After a career within a variety of teams, Micky retired in 1996 and became a well established football speaker that travels the UK sharing his insights. Mickey is well received by his football listeners for his accessible personality and delivery style. Still following his passion of football Micky is often seen covering football games and reporting high profile incidents and transfers for TalkSPORT and BBC radio stations. On top of football speaking, Mickey spends his time training horses at his own stables to which he has developed a very impressive client list.
Micky makes for a very interesting sports speaker who can cover both horse racing and football, entertaining audiences with his stories and insights into the world of football both past and present. Along with sharing his experiences, he can also pass on important lessons and skills he’s learned from teamwork, leadership, and resilience to dealing with adversity and maximising success.
