Steve Bleasdale (born 1960) is an English football coach. He has managed Bangor City,[1][2] Leigh Genesis and Football League side Peterborough United,[3][4] and twice been assistant manager at Chester City.


On 14 November 2008, Bleasdale again joined Mark Wright as assistant at Chester City.[5] However, on 21 February 2009, it was announced he had left the club, due to unspecified reasons, described by Wright as "there are a few things we’re not happy about and we’ll just have to get on with it. There are some things behind the scenes which I feel very, very let down about and which I’m not prepared to elaborate on at this time."[6] [7]

Coaching badges[edit]

Bleasdale has obtained both the UEFA A and Pro licences, which makes him one of the highest qualified coaches in the English football pyramid outside of the Premier League.[8]
