Peter Shilton OBE

england's most capped player


As an English sporting legend and highly regarded football speaker throughout the sporting world, Peter Shilton is one of the best goalkeepers to ever play for England. During his international career, Peter established a record of 125 caps for his country, a feat that has yet to be replicated.

Peter’s experience of peak performance at the highest levels of sport translates well to corporate environments as a sports speaker. Peter communicates vividly the self-discipline and dedication it takes to become the world’s best and possesses an infectious desire for success that he tries to instill into every audience member.

An ambitious Shilton considered moving from Leicester after relegation, but decided to stick with his boyhood team. Time would show that this was a wise decision, as Shilton impressed England manage Alf Ramsay sufficiently to warrant a debut international performance against East Germany, with England winning the game 3-1. A little over six months later, Leicester were promoted back to the First Division of English Football, thanks in part to Shilton’s outstanding performances.

During his playing career, Peter won two back-to-back European Cups with the Brian Clough’s Nottingham Forest and was named the PFA Player of the Year for 1977-1978. Shilton earned both an MBE and OBE for his services to football. Shilton’s illustrious career and the dedication needed to perform at this level relates well to corporate audiences, making him a renowned football speaker.

Peter has also been awarded the Order of Merit in 2002 from the PFA and his impact on English Football makes him one of the true greats of English footballing history.

Besides football, Peter has made regular appearances on a whole host of television programmes, including Celebrity Come Dine With Me, Let’s Dance for Sports Relief and the renowned BBC talent show Strictly Come Dancing. Peter’s quick-stepping and waltzing ability confirmed his status as one of the nation’s best loved sports stars.
