Keith Gillespie began his career at Manchester United through their acclaimed Youth Academy system, rising as a key member of the ‘dream team’ squad in the early 1990s alongside esteemed legends Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes, David Beckham, Gary Neville as well as Ryan Giggs and Robbie Savage.
After winning the FA Youth Cup in 1992, the Northern Irish winger Gillespie stepped out as a Manchester United hopeful for just 9 full appearances before being reluctantly traded to Newcastle United in a multi-million pound swap deal.
The champion in the making would go on to become one of Newcastle’s eminent talents of the period, also playing in the UEFA Champions League as well as domestic competition. Gillespie enjoyed a prosperous period at Newcastle, with 113 game and 11 goals before a shift to Blackburn Rovers.
At Blackburn he helped his side to a dream run in 2002 to win the Football League Cup, taking down Sheffield Wednesday, Manchester City and Arsenal along the way to eventually beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 in the final and take the silverware. During his career Gillespie also played in the Premier League for Leicester City and Sheffield United, helping the former win the Football League Cup in 2002.
Gillespie is not only an English Football icon, revered by his peers and his fans as one of the greats, he also earned 86 caps for his homeland Northern Ireland between 1994 and 2008, placing him 6th in their most capped players of all time.
Brett Holman emerged as one of Australia’s top talents during the early 2000s, coming through from Sydney to debut for Dutch powerhouse club SBV Excelsior in 2002 — winning the coveted Players’ Player award for the 2004/05 season. Holman would go on to earn Dutch Football notoriety whilst maintaining a formidable presence in Australia representing his country at an international level.
After a massive 134 games with Excelsior, including netting a massive 39 goals from his attacking midfielder position, a string of successful runs at a bevy of famous international clubs ensued, including seasons at current EPL club Aston Villa, Nijmegen Eendracht Combinatie, Al-Nasr Dubai SC and others, eventually returning home to Brisbane Roar.
Holman is one of Australia’s most prolific international representative players of the modern era, voted the FFA Male Footballer of The Year in 2012, and having not only appeared for the Socceroos over 60 times, but represented his country in no less than 89 games, scoring 18 goals for Australia during both Youth and Senior appearances, at World Cup level and even the Olympics.
