"I live on the Humber Valley resort and we're planning a celebrity golf trip just to make people aware of it."

Marshall also runs soccer skills for youngsters  and employs some former Leicester City coaches. He was pleased to hear of the Milan Mandaric takeover deal and hopes that it will lead to a bright future at the Walkers Stadium:

"It's a great signing! Hopefully with his knowledge and his input he's going to take the club forward."

Looking after Beckham

The former Ipswich striker scored many memorable goals for the club and outside of the UEFA Cup, he remembers his last-minute winner at his hometown club Liverpool, and one of his few career hat-tricks in the 4-2 win over Derby at Filbert Street:

"I'd always wanted to score at Anfield, and the three against Derby were great."

Beckham's new coach

One connection that Marshall is also proud of is his old Ipswich teammate Frank Yallop being David Beckham's future manager.  

Yallop is the coach at LA Galaxy and Marshall says he's sure that Beckham will get plenty of respect:

"Frank will be the first to admit that he was an average right back and now he finds himself in charge of the most famous footballer in the world and I'm not sure he'll have the authority to drop him!"
