There isn’t a whole lot Dave Beasant hasn’t seen in football.

He was the first goalkeeper to save a penalty in the FA Cup Final, the first goalkeeper to captain his side to FA Cup glory and the first goalkeeper to be tackled by a bottle of salad cream.

From the Crazy Gang to coming out of retirement at the age of 56, this is his quite colourful story.
