Geoff Horsfield

Where is Geoff Horsfield now?

A late-comer to the professional game, Geoff Horsfield AKA “The Horse”, retired from playing full time at the end of the 2009-10 season after a spell with Port Vale.

Playing in every league from the Conference up to the Premier League, Horsfield made nearly 500 appearances scoring 140 goals over an 18-year career.

During a diverse playing career he won the Football Conference with Halifax Town, the Second Division title with Fulham and was a League Cup runner-up with Birmingham City.

He was also diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2008 but made a full recovery and joined up with Lincoln City where he took his first steps into coaching with their reserve side in addition to his playing role.

Horsfield left the Imps in 2009 for Port Vale where he was appointed player-assistant manager before moving to full time assistant manager a year later when he had finally finished his playing career.

He only remained in this position for a year before stepping down to concentrate on his coaching qualifications but remained at the club as a coach.

In 2012 Horsfield left Port Vale and football completely to concentrate on business interests which included a construction company that he owned.

Currently working in local housing management and support services in Erdington, he has set up the Geoff Horsfield Foundation which provides supported accommodation for homeless and vulnerable people.
