Russell Beardsmore Profile

As things turned out, Rus­sell Beards­more was gradu­ally for­ced out of the Man­chester Uni­ted Squad and the all ac­tion mid­field mo­tor went out on a loan spell wi­th Sec­ond Di­vi­sion out­fit Black­burn Rov­ers in 1991. To top it all, Beardsmore´s ca­reer was ham­pered by a string of in­jur­ies and the frail young­ster on­ly ma­naged to make a total of 73 fir­st te­am ap­pear­ances for The Red Dev­ils dur­ing his stay at Old Traf­ford. Af­ter hav­ing spent sev­en years wi­th Man­chester Uni­ted, the in­jury prone play­maker fi­nally sig­ned for AFC Bourne­mouth on a free trans­fer in the sum­mer of 1993. Wi­th The Cher­ries, Beards­more re­gained his pre­vi­ous form and the tough little fel­low stayed wi­th the club for five years un­til he called it a day at the end of the 1997-98 cam­paign due to a per­sist­ent back in­jury. Af­ter hanging up his boots, he would work as an In­clu­sion Of­ficer at the AFC Bourne­mouth Com­munity Sports Trust.
