Dave Bassett

Former Professional Footballer, Football Manager, After Dinner Speaker, Guest Apperances

Dave "Harry" Bassett is without doubt one of football's colourful characters.

Affectionately known as 'Harry', he plied his trade at several clubs with considerable success including: Wimbledon, Watford, Sheffield United, Crystal Palace, Nottingham Forest, Barnsley, Leicester City and of course previously with Saints.

He is probably best known for guiding Wimbledon FC to the First Division in the 1980s after taking over from Dario Gradi at Plough Lane in 1981. Considering the fact that Wimbledon had only been elected to the Football League in 1977, it was an astounding achievement.

Bassett formed the original 'Crazy Gang' and although he left in 1987, many of the players he had signed took The Dons to an unexpected FA Cup victory in 1988 against the great Liverpool side under Bobby Gould.

His credentials as a hard-working and successful motivator are well-renowned.

He is consistently in demand as a television pundit and a speaker on motivational techniques, besides being a long-serving member of the LMA's management committee.
