Peter Shilton & Steph Shilton

Peter Shilton started as an apprentice goalkeeper at Leicester City at the tender age of 15, making his first team debut at 16 – the youngest player ever to play for Leicester at that time. He went on to win two European cups and a league title with Nottingham Forest, and to play in three World Cups for England during a 30-year professional football career. Peter received an OBE for his contribution to football, and is regarded as one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time, ranked in the FIFA top 100 legends. Sadly, in Peter’s private life he suffered a 45-year gambling addiction until he met Steph, his wife.


Steph Shilton worked as a manager in this NHS for over 20 years and is also an accomplished blues and jazz singer. Steph met Peter at the beginning of 2012, and they married in December 2016.
