Which of Our Clients Have Been Premier League Players?

The men’s English football league system’s top division is called the Premier League. The competition, English Football League (EFL), involves 20 clubs and uses a promotion and relegation system, which competes with the Premier League. As the Premier League is currently ongoing, it is sensible to review clients who are former Premier League players.

Ian Walker 


Ian Walker is an established English football coach and former professional football player. Walker is the son of Mike Walker, a goalkeeper who previously served as a manager of Everton and Norwich City. Nowadays Ian Walker is the goalkeeping coach for the Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG. However, he is arguably best remembered for his time as England’s goalkeeper and as the former Spurs No. 1 in the Premier League. Walker left Spurs in 2001 and transferred to Premier League Bolton Wanderers after playing for Leicester City for 4 seasons.


Off the pitch, Ian Walker is regarded by his teammates as a little bit of a daredevil who will try anything once (as long as it’s legal). For example, he competed against Freddie Flintoff in wing walking at Palm Springs, California, on ITV’s Freddie Flintoff’s World Challenge. His sense of humour is what makes him a brilliant guest on any TV or radio show. 

Tony Cottee


Since Tony Cottee is likely one of the most accomplished and successful football strikers our nation has ever seen, he really doesn’t need an introduction. Cottee played for West Ham, Everton, Leicester, Norwich City, Barnet, and Millwall in addition to representing England. He also spent a year playing abroad in Malaysia, where he led the team as their top scorer back in the September of 2000.


Tony now works as a TV football commentator, which only seems fitting after a career as successful as his. Tony is not only one of the friendliest individuals in football, but he is also very media-friendly. He would be a great addition to any football panel on TV or radio.

Dean Holdsworth


Dean Holdsworth is a former manager and professional footballer from England. Over the course of a 22-year career as a striker, he scored 193 goals in 610 league appearances. The majority of his goals and matches came at Brentford, Wimbledon, and Bolton Wanderers despite playing for 16 clubs across 19 spells. 


Nowadays you will find Holdsworth commenting on other footballers playing matches for Sky, BT Sport, and numerous international satellite channels.


Terry Phelan 


Since his birth in 1967, Terry Phelan has had a football-centred life. He has performed a variety of tasks, including coaching, mentoring, and commentating, not just in the UK but also in New Zealand, America, and India.
