Playing career[edit]

He was a central defender who joined Bournemouth from non-league Weymouth for £50,000 in 1989. He spent three seasons at Bournemouth before moving to Aston Villa in July 1991.[1] He helped them finish runners-up in the Premier League in 1993 and win the Football League Cup a year later, before losing his place in the first team to Ugo Ehiogu.

He moved from Villa to join Tranmere Rovers for £500,000 in the summer of 1995.[2][3] He made his Tranmere debut on 12 August 1995 against Wolves and played in 29 league games for Tranmere in his first season with them.[3] Whilst with Rovers he had loan spells with Preston North End and Sing Tao SC, before signing for Motherwell in August 1998.[1]

Teale moved from Motherwell to Carlisle United on a free transfer in February 2000, playing 20 games for the Cumbrian club.[1] He then went on to join Southport, playing for them until the age of 40, before moving into non-league coaching and management.[4]

Managerial career[edit]

Teale was appointed manager of Burscough, a team in the Northern Premier League Premier Division. Whilst he was there, the side won the 2003 FA Trophy.

Teale left Burscough six weeks after the Trophy win, and has since managed Northwich Victoria, a Football Conference team in the 2003/04 season.[5] Teale left Northwich at the end of the 2003/04 season.[6]

Between February 2005 and August 2006, Teale managed Northern Premier League First Division side Chorley, before leaving to run his pub and restaurant business in Burscough.[7][8]
