Jimmy Bullard

Where is Jimmy Bullard now?

A hugely likeable character, Jimmy Bullard’s football career was cut short in 2012 due to problems with his knees.

Bullard will always be known for his fantastic football abilities but also fondly remembered for his comedic goal celebrations. 

Since retiring from playing Jimmy Bullard has been extremely busy with various projects including a nutrition business, a company which helps professional sports people cope with the prospect or reality of retirement called Extra Time Management and he is still hoping to start a new career as a professional golfer.

He also owns the highly rated One Bell pub in Crayford which he bought for his father as appreciation for his support throughout his career.

In 2014 Jimmy Bullard released his first book Bend It Like Bullard which has loads of amusing stories from his career as a professional footballer.

In November 2014, Jimmy Bullard participated in I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here but was the first to be voted out after initially being the bookie’s favourite to win.

In 2015 Bullard started a football podcast called The Magic Sponge with comedian Rob Beckett. The show has become a huge success and is one of the UK’s most popular comedy podcasts.



He was also a regular guest on the first series of ITV’s Saturday night sports show “Play to the Whistle” with Holly Willoughby and Bradley Walsh.

In 2016 Bullard starred in his own golf show on Sky Sports 4 called Golf Juice which he co-hosts with DJ Spoony and Zoe Hardman.

He also had a spell presenting his own show called ‘Jimmy Bullard Kicks Off’ on satellite channel London Live.

In a move which surprised many, Jimmy Bullard made a return to football in September 2016 when he joined non-league side Leatherhead as their new manager.

Despite a great first season at the club, finishing 13th in the Isthmian League, Bullard left in May 2017 to pursue a full-time manager’s position at another club.
