Tim Breacker (born 2 July 1965) is an English former footballer and current football coach.

Footballing career[edit]

Luton Town[edit]

Born in Bicester, England, Breacker started his career as an apprentice at Luton Town. He made 210 appearances for the first team. In 1987-88, he helped Luton win their first — and only to date — major trophy as they achieved a shock 3-2 over Arsenal in the Football League Cup final.

West Ham United[edit]

From Luton he was signed by manager Billy Bonds for West Ham United for £600,000.[1] He made his debut on 20 October 1990 in a 1-0 away win against Swindon Town as a substitute for Julian Dicks.[2][3] He spent nine years at Upton Park and was the first choice right-back for most of the 1990s again playing over 200 league games.

Queens Park Rangers[edit]

Breacker finished his playing career with two seasons at Queens Park Rangers.

Coaching career[edit]

On 29 November 2007 Breacker became the assistant manager at Leicester City after following Ian Holloway from Plymouth Argyle. He left Leicester by mutual consent on 1 July 2008 after Nigel Pearson had taken charge at the club.[4]

On 28 July 2009, Breacker was named assistant manager to Phil Parkinson at Charlton Athletic. He was sacked, along with Parkinson, on 4 January 2011.[5] In July 2011, Breacker was named as a scout at Championship side Millwall.[6] Breacker followed Parkinson to Bradford City where he was appointed as chief scout.[7]

In June 2016, Breacker was on the move again, following Parkinson to Bolton Wanderers.[8]
