Bernard Shaw (born 14 March 1945 in Sheffield) is a former English footballer who played as a full back. He played more than 100 Football League games for each of the Sheffield clubs and for Wolverhampton Wanderers, in a career of more than 400 senior games.[1]


Shaw began his career at Sheffield United as an apprentice. He made his first team debut during 1963 and, by 1966, was a first choice player.[2] He was sold to Wolverhampton Wanderers for £70,000 in July 1969. He made his Wolves debut on 8 October 1969 in a 2–2 draw with Sheffield Wednesday.[3] After playing infrequently during his debut season[4] he was a first choice player over the following seasons, which saw him play in the 1972 UEFA Cup Final.[5] After 156 appearances in total for Wolves,[6] he returned to his native Sheffield in Summer 1973, joining Sheffield Wednesday. He played over 100 games for the Owls over the next three seasons[7] before dropping into non-league football with Worksop Town before retiring.[1]
