Chris Beardsley Player Profile

Debut: Ebbsfleet United (H, 3-0), 18/08/2009  

Chris Beardsley was signed for Stevenage Borough by manager Graham Westley in summer 2009, despite not having the most prolific of goalscoring records for his previous clubs at non-league level. It was arguably a bit of a gamble by Westley but it was certainly one that paid dividends during Beardo’s stay with Boro’.

A lack of that goalscoring pedigree might not have inspired much confidence, but the forward took the opportunity to finally make a name for himself after a series of false starts. Goals remained at a premium, but Beardo established himself in the first team with a series of highly impressive and tenacious displays.

Never afraid of ruffling the feathers of defenders throughout the league, Beardsley put the legwork in to enable others to flourish around him. Although finding the net was perhaps seen a second string to his bow, to finish with 10 goals in the 2009/10 title-winning season was no mean feat and a valuable contribution.

The step up to League Two, followed by League One, were taken by Beardsley in his stride and he made himself at home at a higher level. He helped guide Boro’ to a second successive promotions in 2011 and finished as the club’s top goalscorer as Boro’ narrowly missed out on a third.

The return of Graham Westley for a third stint as manager almost paved the way for Beardo to return in kind, though his return came only after Preston opted to release the forward. He had lost little of his appetite for doing the hard graft up top as Boro’ surged towards the 2015 League Two playoffs before leaving for a second time.

Stats do not include expunged Chester City fixtures in 2009/10.
