Peter Shilton OBE is widely regarded as one of the most accomplished goalkeepers to have ever played football. His record of 125 England caps is unequalled and, in winning the old First Division title with Nottingham Forest in the 1977-78 season, his fellow players voted him the PFA Player of the Year. Shilton went on to claim back-to-back European Cup victories with Forest.
Peter began his playing career in 1966 with Leicester City and won his first England cap under Sir Alf Ramsey aged just 21 in 1970. In the mid-1970s he had a 3 year spell with Stoke City before being signed for Forest by the eccentric football genius, Brian Clough, in 1977. Success came the following season with the First Division title and individual acclaim from the PFA.
The next 2 years saw Peter reach the peak of his club career, keeping clean sheets in successive European Cup Finals and cementing his world class status. His 125 England caps took him to 3 World Cups - Spain ’82 and Mexico ’86, where Maradona scored with his infamous ‘Hand of God’, plus Italia ’90 when a 40 year old Shilton helped England to the semi-finals.
Peter Shilton is a footballer of global recognition. He played a total of 1130 professional games and a world record 1005 club appearances over an incredible 31 years and as such has a wealth of anecdotes and experience that he now passes on as a football speaker on the after dinner circuit. Peter has been a part of the Champions Celebrity Agency family since 2004 and we have raised his profile with wonderful exposure and a long line of high value media appearances.
