Ray Clemence, Sporting after dinner speaker


British football speaker and goalie Ray Clemence MBE spent a long and illustrious career playing for some of the most reputable teams in British football including a seven year stint at Tottenham Hotspurs following his almost fifteen year run at Liverpool.

Retiring as a player more than thirty years ago Ray Clemence remains one of the highly regarded football speakers and goal keepers in both England and Anfield history; voted number 11 in a poll of “the 100 players that shook the Kop” and the highest rated goalie in the selection Clemence continues to hold sway amongst the Red’s faithful’s. Working as a sports speaker at a variety of events including those hosted by Liverpool and Tottenham FC’s Clemence’s enigmatic personality and respected career draw large and eager crowds.

Following his retirement as a professional player Ray went on to work as a coach and member of the backroom staff at both Spurs and England. Coaching the Under 16’s, 17’s, 18’s, 19’s and 20’s Clemence was an integral part of the England training team and helped to develop some of the most impressive players in recent England history. Alongside his work as a goalkeeping coach Ray Clemence has worked as a football speaker on behalf of the England coaching team, helping to encourage young sporting enthusiasts into the beautiful game.

Forced into a brief period of retirement whilst working under England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson, Ray Clemence MBE is known for his high profile battle with prostate cancer, and in his capacity as a sports speaker, talks of the intense treatment and personal strength required to overcome the disease.
