John Cornforth Biography

John Cornforth is one of the most popular and richest Association Football Player who was born on October 7, 1967 in Whitley Bay, Whitley Bay, United Kingdom. John Michael Cornforth (born 7 October 1967) is a former Wales international football player and is now a coach, most recently head coach at English League Two club Torquay United. Originally from Whitley Bay in the north-east of England, Cornforth and his family have been settled in Devon for some time.

In January 2006 Cornforth took over as caretaker manager at Torquay United from Leroy Rosenior with the side deep in relegation trouble and soon after was appointed as manager until the end of the season. The side’s form worsened however, and Ian Atkins replaced Cornforth in April, having joined the club as an advisor to Cornforth the previous month. Against all odds, Atkins managed to rescue the side and lift them a comfortable three points clear from relegation.

In November 2010 Cornforth was appointed Manager of South West Peninsula League side Witheridge.

In February 2012 Cornforth joined Blyth Spartans F.C.. as Assistant manager to Tom Wade.

In July 2004 he joined the coaching team (unpaid) at his local side Crediton United.
