Bradley Walsh at Brentford FC

Comedian and actor, Bradley Walsh was a professional footballer at Brentford in the late 1970s for 2 years but never made the first team squad, due to injuries which eventually ended his career.

Before that he started playing on the Barnet youth and then for a team in the Hertfordshire County League, a Brentford talent scout spotted Bradley and signed him.

His love of football continued, being a keen supporter of Arsenal and even comentating on the FA Cup Final in 2002 for Sky where Arsenal won against Chelsea.

He plays for fellow ex-Brentford player Rod Stewart's team, the Vagabonds, in Surrey.

On 14 May 2009, Bradley played on the All Stars team against Liverpool Legends in the Hillsborough Memorial Match at Anfield in aid of the Marina Dalglish Appeal.

Two days after Bradley's 50th birthday he scored from a penalty for England in front of 72,000 in Old Trafford and another 5.5 million viewers watching live at home. You can view the goal, and his celebration (as Bradley does on a daily basis).
