Russell Beardsmore

Clubs played for: Manchester United, Blackburn Rovers, AFC Bournemouth (1988-1998)




Biography: One of the original Fergie's Fledglings, he announced his arrival in the first team in style scoring one and setting up two in only his second game. He became a first team regular for the rest of the 1988-1989 season following the departure of Gordon Strachan, but a loss of form and injuries saw him return to the reserves. Following the arrival of Paul Ince and Neil Webb, his chances became fewer and in the end he was granted a free transfer. After a serious back injury ended his career, he returned to the north west to work as assistant community officer at Bolton before joining Bournemouth's coaching staff. Now the club's Community Sports Trust as an Inclusion Officer.
