Where is Neil Shipperley now?

A regular player during the 1990s in the Premier League, Neil Shipperley hung up his boots in 2007 after a short spell with Brentford.

Starting his career with Chelsea in 1992 he went onto make 500 first team appearances for nine clubs and was Southampton’s club record signing when he joined for £1.25 million in 1995.

Upon retiring from playing Shipperley made the move into coaching and joined non-league side Bedfont in 2009 before leaving after a year to take charge at Walton Casuals.

He only stayed at the club for 15 months before quitting but returned to football management just two months later when he joined North Greenford United who were playing in the Southern Football League at the time.

He resigned in May 2012 to try to get management experience at a higher level but returned for a second spell five months later resigning again in February 2014.

In December 2019, Shipperley made the headlines when he was found guilty of exposing his genitals in front of a mother and her 16-year-old daughter whilst driving his van.

He was given a 12-month community order and ordered to pay a £90 victim surcharge along with £85 costs and £200 compensation.

Shipperley admitted that he had previously sought counselling for various personal issues including gambling debts and the loss of his father and that this incident was a cry for help.
