Lionel Perez Player Profile

Debut: Morecambe (H, 1-1), 08/02/2003

One of the most iconic figures to ever grace Broadhall Way, Lionel Perez was the biggest name to sign for us since midfielder Ray Houghton. The ex-Newcastle and Sunderland stopper came in as a rival to Mark Westhead and his class soon shone through. He soon made himself an important part of GW’s team at that time. And there was no shortage of flamboyance on show when the Frenchmen took up position between the sticks.

After a career-ending injury sustained in a collision with ex-Boro’ hero Giuliano Grazioli against Barnet, Perez joined our coaching staff. And there was still one more moment of infamy to come; appearing to prod one of his counterparts in the eye when Northampton Town came to us in an FA Cup tie. It was enough to get Match of the Day 2’s notice…

Lionel Perez: Before Boro’

Perez’ early career is certainly impressive; starting at Bordeaux, much like the mercurial Jean-Michel Sigere. The next move on his career path was on to the North East; turning out for both Geordies and Mackems. After that came a step down to Cambridge United, before Scunthorpe United made use of his services. And he still had much to offer us by the time he arrived; not least some of that French flair missing since Siggy’s departure.
