Goalkeeper’s Cut: Kevin Pilkington

kevin pilkington

This week’s guest grew into goalkeeping via one of football’s finest foundations.

He’s shared a changing room with global superstars, he’s played more more than 400 games over the course of a 27-year career, he’s a man Robbie Savage once referred to as a “gentle giant” and, more importantly, at the tender age of 45, he is the last remaining member of the celebrated Class of ’92 to still be playing.

Kevin Pilkington stood alongside David Beckham and co as the man between the sticks when Manchester United won the FA Youth Cup in 1992.

He tells stories of his time at Old Trafford, from being offered a contract by Sir Alex Ferguson to playing behind the likes of Bruce, Pallister and, er, William Prunier.
