His career :
Offered trials at West
Bromich Albion, Manchester City, Southampton and Newcastle United when just 14 years old.
Signed for Southampton
at 16 years old.
Scored a hat trick on his full debut for Southampton (that wouldnt have looked
bad on his early CV, started 1, scored 3, not that its any worse now!)
Kenny Dalglish signed
Alan for Blackburn Rovers in July 1992 for a British record of £3.3 million. He helped Blackburn Rovers win the Premiership.
He also built a very successful partnership at Blackburn with Chris Sutton. They were known as SAS (Sutton And Shearer).
Kevin Keegan brought
Alan Shearer home to Newcastle United in July 1996 for a, at the time, world record transfer fee of £15 million (cheap at
even double the price).
Shearer has been successful in all levels of football he has played in. In
the Premiership, he knocks in about 30 goals per season. He was the first person to reach 100 and 200 goals in the Premiership.
He was no slouch at international
level either. He was successful at under-21 level, and also at senior level. In total he played 11 times for the under-21s
scoring 13 goals and played 63 times for the England senior team scoring a total of 30 goals. He received the Golden Boot
at Euro 96 and became England captain until he retired from international football. He did this because he wanted to give
100% to his beloved Newcastle United and the Geordie supporters.
Alan Shearer True Geordie hero, blasted out of Northumberland
wind stone, just harder.
