John Beresford (born 4 September 1966) is a former English football player who played as a defender, who is currently a pundit for ITV Tyne Tees and ESPN.

Football career

Beresford was born in Sheffield; in his footballing career he played for clubs Manchester City, Barnsley, Portsmouth, Newcastle United, Southampton and Birmingham City. He is most famous for his Newcastle United spell between 1992 and 1998, with his attacking tendencies being crucial to "the Entertainers". During this time Beresford formed a formidable partnership with the other full back, his doppelgänger Warren Barton. Beresford is also remembered by some for missing his spot kick in the 1992 FA Cup semi-final penalty shootout against Liverpool while playing for Portsmouth.

Beresford won two England 'B' caps in 1994, against Northern Ireland 'B' and the Republic of Ireland 'B'.

Later in his career, Beresford went on to represent the England Beach Soccer team in an exhibition game in Birmingham.
