Ian St John was Liverpool's record signing when brought from Scottish club side Motherwell for £37,500 and would soon settle into a successful Liverpool side under the guidance of Bill Shankly and partner Roger Hunt. During his time at Anfield, Liverpool won 2 domestic championships and the club's first FA Cup against Leeds United in 1965, where Ian scored the winner with a diving header.
St John's arrival at Anfield marked the start of the club's rise to pre-eminence in English football, where Ian was the attacking spark the team had been waiting for. In later seasons St John would play a deeper midfield role, giving him a platform on which to show his all-round abilities. After an exceptionally successful career as a player Ian went into club management before moving into the media.
Ian is a very good orator and is much in demand as an after dinner speaker with his insight and knowledge of football from Bill Shankly to modern Premiership football. Ian's style of speaking is both informative and anecdotal with a lot of humour, additionally Ian is available for golf days, corporate seminars and personal appearances.
As well as playing golf (handicap of 13) Ian also runs a highly successful soccer coaching school for young players (Ian St John Soccer camps). Other hobbies include travel, gardening and reading as well as being a keen sports watcher.
