Shear Stats

Born : 13th August 1970 in Newcastle Upon Tyne

Height : 5ft 11

Weight : 79kg / 12st 11

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.
