Steve Burtenshaw (born 23 November 1935 in Portslade) is an English former football player and manager. As a player, he made more than 200 appearances in the Football League as a wing half for Brighton & Hove Albion. As a manager, he took charge of several Football League clubs.
Career[edit]
Burtenshaw was a one club man as a player, playing 237 matches in the Football League as a wing half for Brighton & Hove Albion between 1952 and 1966.[2]
After retiring, Burtenshaw became a coach at Brighton; amongst the players he took under his wing was Howard Wilkinson, the future First Division-winning Leeds United manager.[3]
Burtenshaw joined Arsenal as a coach in 1971, succeeding Don Howe after his departure to West Bromwich Albion. Burtenshaw stayed for two years before resigning, despite the club reaching an FA Cup final and coming second in the First Division.
Soon after, he moved to Sheffield Wednesday and spent two years there as manager.[4] He later became a coach at Everton, managing the side in a caretaker capacity for three games in January 1977 after the club sacked Billy Bingham.[5] He went on to manage Queens Park Rangers from 1978 to 1979.[6]
Burtenshaw later returned to Arsenal as a coach and scout, and was caretaker manager of the club between March and May 1986, after the resignation of Don Howe as manager; Arsenal finished seventh in the First Division that season. He returned to his coaching role after the club appointed George Graham that summer. Burtenshaw’s time at the club was overshadowed when he admitted taking “bungs” for signing John Jensen, in the scandal that led to Graham’s sacking as Arsenal manager. He was fined £7,500 with £2,500 costs by the Football Association.[7][8]
After leaving Arsenal along with Bruce Rioch in 1996, Burtenshaw became chief scout under Stewart Houston at Queens Park Rangers.[7] Despite suffering a stroke in 2001[7] he later joined Kevi
