Who is Peter Crouch?
Peter Crouch is a former professional football striker. Peter Crouch is one of 32 Premier League players to have scored 100 or more goals, and he holds the record for the most headed goals in Premier League history.
Early Life and Childhood
Peter Crouch was born in Macclesfield, England, on January 30, 1981. He has 41 years on the clock.
When Peter was a year old, his family relocated to Singapore. His father, who is originally from Fulham, accepted a job offer to work at a Singaporean advertising agency. Sarah is Peter’s younger sister.
After Bruce turned down the opportunity to work in Australia, the Crouch family spent three years in Southeast Asia before returning to England.
They then lived at a YMCA in Tottenham before relocating to Harrow on the Hill.
Peter Crouch went to Roxeth Primary School and North Ealing Primary School before joining Northolt Hotspurs. In 1991, Peter was invited to join the Brentford Centre of Excellence.
While attending Drayton Manor High School, he also played for the boys club West Middlesex Colts.
In the summer of 1994, Peter turned down contract offers from Chelsea and Millwall in order to join Queens Park Rangers.
He did not stay at QPR for long, however, as the coaching staff at Loftus Road was transferred to Tottenham Hotspur, including youth team manager Des Bulpin, who offered Crouch a contract at Spurs in November 1994.
Crouch has hosted a podcast for the BBC since retiring from football at the age of 38. He also hosts Peter: Save Our Summer on BBC One on Saturday nights.
Peter has been a Director of Dulwich Hamlet, a team he played for as a 17-year-old, since June 2021. The first series of That Peter Podcast, starring Crouch, Tom Fordyce, and Chris Stark, premiered in the autumn of 2018.
On 19 July 2005, Southampton agreed to sell Peter for £7 million to Liverpool on a four-year contract. During his first months at Liverpool, he was heavily criticized by the media for failing to score a goal.
Peter was scoreless in 19 matches over the course of four months. He was praised for other aspects of his game, such as his touch on the ball, but he failed to score his first goal for the club.
On 3 December 2005, he finally broke the drought when he scored against Wigan Athletic. Peter scored a crucial goal in a 1-1 draw against Arsenal in April, helping Liverpool secure fourth place ahead of local rivals Everton.
Peter began using a robotic dancing goal celebration in 2006. A parody of a dance he saw on a television program covering a party at England teammate David Beckham’s house.
He first did it after scoring for England against Hungary on May 30. On June 3, he repeated the dance after scoring both of his first two goals against Jamaica.
The dance was inspired by the lyrics to Arctic Monkeys’ hit single “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor,” according to the Daily Mirror.
Peter performed the dance for the final time on February 1, 2017, to commemorate his 100th Premier League goal.
Walking Tall – My Story, Peter’s autobiography, was published in 2007. How to Be a Footballer, his second book was published in 2018.
