Thomas Beattie is first English footballer to come out as gay in 30 years

Former Hull player Thomas Beattie has come out as gay — the first male English footballer to do so since Justin Fashanu in 1990.

Beattie, from Goole in Yorkshire, says he felt like he could not announce he was gay while playing for a living.

The 33-year-old played for Hull’s youth team and also had spells in the US, Canada and Singapore as part of a career spanning more than 10 years.

Beattie, who now works in business in Singapore, is only the fourth male professional footballer who has played in Britain to come out as gay after Fashanu — who tragically took his own life eight years afterwards — German star Thomas Hitzlsperger and American Robbie Rogers.

Former semi-pro star Liam Davis came out when he was playing back in 2010.
