Club Career

Club(s) Played for Blackburn schools before becoming a Blackburn Rovers FC trainee, signing professionally on 7 March 1995.  After only four league appearances, Beattie signed for Southampton FC for £1 million on 10 July 1998 (in a swap deal that saw Kevin Davies join Rovers). Following a prolific 68 league goals in 204 league appearances, Beattie then became Everton's record signing on 4 January 2005 for £6 million (76 league apps, thirteen goals).  After failing to settle, Beattie then broke Sheffield United FC's transfer record on 4 August 2007 when they paid £4m for his services, despite dropping out of the Premiership (62 league apps, 34 goals). Beattie returned to the Premiership when Stoke City FC bought him on 12 January 2009 for an eventual fee of £3.5m., unfortunately, after a dressing-room altercation between Beattie and his manager Tony Pulis, he was left on the sidelines, (38 league apps, nine goals), until an eventual transfer north of the border when Glasgow Rangers FC paid for his services on 13 August 2010 for an undisclosed fee, (seven SPL apps). On 31 January 2011, Beattie once more returned to Lancashire and the Premiership when Blackpool FC signed him on loan for the remainder of the season (nine Premiership appearances), he was released by Rangers in August 2011. Beattie then trained with AFC Bournemouth and then Sheffield United FC, with whom he signed a short-term contract, but after eighteen league appearances, and failure to win promotion, he was released in the summer of 2012. Beattie signed as a player-coach at Accrington Stanley FC on 9 November 2012, scoring his first professional goal in three years on 20 November. He was appointed player-manager of Stanley on 24 May 2013. He had completed 25 league appearances and scored six time up until the end of 2012-23.
