Steve Kindon

Steve Kindon was born in Warrington on 17th December 1950.

He attended Wade Deacon School in Widnes, and joined Burnley FC as an apprentice straight from school after the manager Harry Potts had seen him playing on a local park.

Steve made his league debut just eighteen months later, and soon established himself in the first team. In that same season, he won his first cap for England at Youth level. His speed and strength made him one of the most feared forwards in the First Division, and he was signed by Bill McGarry for Wolves in 1972 when he was the First Division leading scorer.

After five years at Wolves, Steve returned to Burnley for two years, and eventually finished his playing days at Huddersfield Town.

His honours include 2 Divisional Championship medals, 1 EUFA Cup medal and also represented the FA X1.

He won the title of the fastest footballer in the League from 1971 – 1978, and says that he would have had many more honours but for the influence of Joshua Tetley who played a major part in his career!

Steve played more than 300 league and cup games, and scored more than 150 goals. He now lives in Blackpool, and after heading a very successful import company until 2000, he now concentrates on his full time media and corporate career. Steve is regarded as probably one of the best football speakers around today.
