He was: Crap but cheap

The record speaks for itself. Peter Beadle was signed for a negligible amount of money in the hope that he could do a job for us - the gamble didn't come off. At a time when we needed a centre forward, it was hoped that Beadle would fill the role - in fact, despite being tall, he wasn't a centre forward at all. He won very little in the air and seemed totally lacking that killer instinct around the box. Only once did he impress me - playing in a Tuesday night game against Barnsley, he got into a bruising encounter with Taggart, lost his rag completely and played brilliantly. Other than that, it's difficult to see why Bristol Rovers wanted to pay money for him.
