IAN BOGIE FACTFILE
Born: Newcastle, 1967 (Age 47) 1985-89 A creative midfielder, Bogie came through the ranks at Newcastle and made his debut in August 1986 against Luton. However, with his path blocked by Paul Gascoigne, Bogie struggled to establish himself and left to join Preston in 1989 having made 21 appearances for his hometown club.
1989-95 Bogie scored 12 goals in 91 games for Preston before making a £145,000 move to Second Division Millwall in 1991. A middling twoseason spell at the Den ended with a £75,000 switch to Leyton Orient, where Bogie won player of the year, goal of the season and sealed a place in the PFA team of the year.
1995-2004 After five goals in 78 games for the O’s, Bogie joined Port Vale for £50,000 in 1995 and soon established himself as the side’s creative mainstay. A regular scorer against bitter rivals Stoke, he was a huge fanfavourite and scored 12 goals in 180 games before leaving to join Kidderminster in 2000. Forced to quit through injury after 28 games, he joined Non-League Bedlington Terriers and eventually hung up his boots in 2004, aged 37.
2004-PRESENT A spell coaching Bedlington ended in 2006 when Bogie became manager of Northern Premier League side Gateshead. In five years at the helm, he won successive promotion to reach the Conference and established the Heed in Non-League’s top flight. Sacked in December 2012 after a poor run, he then joined Stockport but resigned after ten games. Bogie currently coaches part time at Newcastle.
