Heslop was a centre half who played for Newcastle United and Everton, before a successful spell at Manchester City between 1965 and 1971, where he made a total of 197 (plus six as substitute) first team appearances scoring three goals. He was an integral member of the team that won the Second Division title (1965/66 season), League Championship, League Cup and the European Cup Winners' Cup. He later played in Cape Town and for Bury.
In retirement, he managed Northwich Victoria for a spell, before becoming landlord of the City Gates public house on Hyde Road. The City Gates was the original Hyde Road Hotel, the location where Ardwick became Manchester City F.C. The venture failed and closed in 1988. Stones from the building currently form part of City's memorial garden at the City of Manchester Stadium.
He died in September 2006 following a short illness.
