The Peter Beardsley saga takes another turn for the worse as new allegations emerge

The Chronicle have revealed that NUFC coach Peter Beardsley is now facing a new set of allegations, with U-23 and U-18 players claiming that he used racist language towards them in training following a series of interviews at the club.

This follows previous claims of racism and bullying which are currently being investigated by the club, with Beardsley having already taken “a period of leave”, seeing Ben Dawson step in to take charge of the U-23’s in the mean time.

The new claims come from the club’s latest investigation, with interviews with all U-18 and U-23 players highlighting that Beardsley is alleged to have told a group of African players “you lot should be better runners” during a session last year.


It has also been claimed that Beardsley accused several players of speaking a “made up language” after overhearing a group of his players communicating in Arabic.

As confirmed by the Chronicle. the club’s investigation into the series of allegations that have emerged is not expected to finalised for ‘several weeks’ yet.

We won’t know the truth until it’s concluded, but it’s certainly not looking good for Beardsley. He may have been a brilliant player for the club, but it’s looking ominous when you consider how many have come forward to complain about the NUFC coach.
