JOHN BUMSTEAD

Chelsea Career: 1976-91
Total Appearances: 409
Total Goals: 44

A much loved player, John played for the Blues for 15 years and played a big part in saving the club from relegation in the 1982/83 season.

The midfielder's impressive performances alongside Nigel Spackman laid the foundations for the Blues to perform to our best ability and John's superb goals aided Chelsea in their push for the Uefa Cup and the league title.

Since leaving Chelsea, John has continued his love of sport by coaching football at Charlton Academy as well as playing cricket and golf to keep himself in peak fitness.
