Safestyle are delighted to announce our official partnership with David Seaman! Known for making great saves, beating our competition and being proud of our Yorkshire roots it made perfect sense for us to link up. We have created this hub area to showcase all the exciting content we will be sharing in future so keep coming back to see what we have been up to!
Renowned for his time playing as goalkeeper for Arsenal, Seaman has also won 75 caps for England, and is the country’s second most capped goalkeeper.
So how did he get to where he is today?
Starting his career at his favourite club Leeds United, young Seaman ended up being released to Peterborough United in 1982 for £4000. Despite this setback, he went on to prove himself to be a star as he went on to make a name for himself at Birmingham City and then Queen Park Rangers.
In 1990 he began his time at Arsenal, the club he is best known for. Amazingly, the British transfer record for a goalkeeper was broken with a bid of £1.3 million to have him on the team.
His sustained excellence as a goalkeeper was undeniable, as he conceded just 18 goals in 38 games during his first season. All in all, David helped to win four FA Cups, one League Cup, UEFA Cup and three First Division and Premier League titles.
It was during this time that David shone for the England team, too. Making his debut in 1988, David appeared for the side for fifteen consecutive years- a national record. Euro 96 was the first major highlight for David during this period, going on to appear for England at the 1998 and 2002 World Cups.
David’s services to the sport haven’t gone unrecognised, being awarded an MBE in 1997 and being inducted into the Football Hall of Fame in 2016.
Although he retired from the sport in 2004 after an illustrious career ending at Manchester City, David keeps himself busy with various commitments informally coaching & mentoring the young keepers at Arsenal, fishing, golfing and various media commitments (recently starring in ITVs Harry’s Hereos), along with actively supporting a clutch of charities.
David also hosts his popular weekly podcast Seaman Says Lynsey Hooper . The show is a platform dedicated to all things football, with special guests popping up such as; Robbie Williams, Russel Brand, Tony Adams, John Barnes, Peter Schmeichel and many more!
