Player description
Stalwart goalkeeper Dave Beasant was appointed as Goalkeeper Coach in summer 2003 following the departure of former coach Gerry Peyton. The 44-year-old keeper started his career at Edgware Town 25 years ago and has played for the likes of Wimbledon, Chelsea, Newcastle and Southampton in what has been an illustrious career.

He is best remembered for being the first keeper to save an FA Cup Final penalty when captaining Wimbledon to their 1-0 win against Liverpool in 1988. He spent nine seasons at Wimbledon before joining Chelsea in 1988-89 after a brief period at Newcastle. He went on loan to Grimsby and Wolves before leaving Stamford Bridge and heading south to the Dell. Beasant has also enjoyed short-term spells at a host of other clubs including Wigan, Bradford, Portsmouth and Tottenham. He has two full England caps.

The veteran keeper signed for Steve Coppell’s Brighton in January 2003 but was unable to prevent the team from slipping into Division Two. The financial circumstances at the club following relegation prevented Beasant from agreeing new terms with Brighton, leaving him as a free agent. Still feeling that he has something to offer as a player, but keen to step into a coaching role, Beasant joined Fulham at the Club’s pre-season training camp in Austria and was appointed as Goalkeeping Coach shortly after returning.

With last season’s third choice keeper Martin Herrera out on loan for 2003/04, Beasant will also be registered as a player so that he can be called upon if needed.
