Alan Curbishley | Speaker Biography

Alan Curbishley, a former English football player and manager, has had a highly successful career in the English first division. Beginning his playing career with West Ham United in 1974, Curbishley quickly made an impression by becoming the youngest ever West Ham player to be named on the team sheet at just 16 years old, due to an injury crisis. With extensive experience as both a player and manager, Curbishley is an excellent choice as a football speaker, offering valuable insights into top-flight football.

During his time with West Ham, Curbishley achieved notable victories, including his first win and goal with the club in 1975 against Newcastle. His exceptional performance earned him the nickname 'Whizz' from his peers. After successful stints with Birmingham, Aston Villa, Charlton Athletic, and Brighton, Curbishley retired from professional football. As a sports speaker, Curbishley aims to inspire audience members with his stories of victory and success.

Following his retirement, Curbishley settled into a coaching role at Charlton Athletic, where he remained for 16 years. In 1995, he took sole command of the club and led them to the Premiership, establishing them as a formidable team. Curbishley managed Charlton for 729 games until 2006 when he moved to West Ham United. Despite the club facing relegation, Curbishley guided them to safety with seven consecutive victories and a top ten finish the following season. As a sports speaker, Curbishley emphasizes the importance of leadership in football and challenges preconceived notions about successful sports teams.

With a wealth of tales and stories, Alan Curbishley is an ideal choice as an after-dinner speaker to entertain guests at events.
