After Dinner Football Speaker Steve Kindon will be providing the enetertainment on Thursday 26th May at Old Trafford when the NES Group have their end of season "Fantassy Football League" presentations.
One of the genuine "characters" of football, Steve Kindon is a great
raconteur whose contribution to any dinner is guaranteed to have the
audience rolling with laughter.
After starring in Burnley's FA Youth Cup run of 1967-68, Steve Kindon
became the first member of the Clarets victorious Youth Cup side to
establish himself in the First Division. He scored on his Turf Moor
debut in a 3-1 victory over West Ham Utd, and after winning Youth
international honours, he was ever-present in Burnley's First Division
side of 1969-70, top-scoring with 17 goals. After the Lancashire club
were relegated in 1971, Kindon was unable to sustain the form that his
speed and talent warranted. He joined Wolves for a fee of £100,000 in
the summer of 1972 and scored on his debut in a 2-1 defeat at Newcastle
Utd on the opening day of the 1972-73 season. However, it took him a
while to settle down in the Midlands and he only appeared briefly in the
club's successful League Cup run in 1973-74, missing out on the final
ed straight back as Second Division Champions the following season with
Kindon playing his part. He had scored 31 goals in 167 games for Wolves
when he returned to Burnley in November 1977 for £80,000. He spent two
more seasons at Turf Moor taking his goal tally to 58 in 225 games
before joining Huddersfield Town where a knee injury ended his career.
