Shaun Newton

Shaun O'Neill Newton is an English former professional footballer whose favoured position was that of attacking right-sided midfielder. He played for Charlton Athletic, Wolverhampton Wanderers, West Ham United and Leicester City before ending his professional football career in 2008. Newton started his career at second-tier Charlton Athletic and worked his way up to the first team, making his debut as a 17-year-old on 14 August 1993 as a substitute in a 1–0 win over Birmingham City, he became a first-team regular and was a virtual ever-present between 1995 and 1998. He was part of the team that reached the 1996 First Division play-offs, scoring inside the first minute of the first leg, which Crystal Palace won 3–1 on aggregate; this era saw him recognised by his country as he won three England Under-21 caps during 1996. His debut came in a 2-0 win over Moldova U-21 on 31 August 1996, he won promotion to the Premier League in 1998 after a play-off final victory over Sunderland, winning on penalties after a 4–4 draw, with Newton scoring Charlton's seventh penalty.

Newton had earlier scored in the semi-final success over Ipswich Town to take them to Wembley. The midfielder's first season in the top flight was interrupted by a knee ligament injury, although he recovered, the club's fortunes did not and they were relegated, he regained his spot in the side in the 1999–2000 season as the club won promotion again at the first attempt as champions. He found him on the sidelines in the Premier League though, as Claus Jensen was signed and youngster Scott Parker emerged, his only goal of the 2000–01 season came in an FA Cup third round replay against Dagenham and Redbridge on 27 January 2001. Frustrated by a lack of first-team opportunities as the team remained in Premier League, he requested a transfer in February and was placed on the transfer list. Although he remained at Charlton for a further six months, he left The Valley in August 2001, joining First Division club Wolverhampton Wanderers for £850,000, rising to £1 million if Wolves were promoted with him registered at the club.

In total, he had made 285 appearances for Charlton. Newton made a bright start at Wolves, scoring on his debut against Portsmouth and producing a career-best seasonal goal tally of 8. Despite this, a late slump saw the club fall away from the top into the play-offs, where they lost to Norwich City. However, the following season saw the midfielder win a third promotion to the top flight as the club won the play-offs, beating Sheffield United 3–0 in the final, he was a first choice for the West Midlands club in the Premier League, something that had evaded him in his Charlton days, but Wolves only managed one season at this level. He retained his place as the 2004–05 season began, but the arrival of Glenn Hoddle as manager saw his opportunities diminish and he left the club in March 2005. In total, he made 130 appearances for scoring 12 times. Newton moved to West Ham United in March 2005 for an initial fee of £10,000, his transfer fee rose to £125,000 after the club gained promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs in May 2005.

This marked Newton's fourth promotion from the second tier and he was rewarded with a new two-year contract in July 2005. He appeared for West Ham in their return to the top flight, albeit as a substitute, he was not selected for their FA Cup Final squad to face Liverpool at the season's end, his only goal for West Ham came during this season, the winner in a victory over Manchester City on 15 April 2006. In July 2006, Newton was suspended for seven months, backdated to 20 May 2006, after testing positive for cocaine following West Ham's FA Cup semi-final victory over Middlesbrough in April 2006, he remained with the club, but only made five further appearances under his arrived former Charlton manager Alan Curbishley upon his return. He made a total of 49 cup appearances for West Ham, scoring once. Newton joined Leicester City on loan in March 2007 until the end of the 2006–07 season, he scored his first goal for Leicester against Birmingham on 17 April 2007. He was given the number 16 shirt, the third player to wear the number that season after Josh Low and Luigi Glombard.

He signed a permanent one-year deal with the Championship club on 6 July 2007 after the appointment of Martin Allen. However his time at the club came to an end in January 2008, with Leicester now onto their third manager of the season in Ian Holloway, when his contract was terminated by mutual consent, he retired that year, after spell on trial at Yeovil Town in April.

He further developed his cinematic skills whilst on a DAAD artist’s bursary in West Berlin, his two Berlin films – along with a further UK-based film – looked at the relationship of sound and image and the nature of cinematic manipulation in the contexts of 70s Germany and 70s Britain. Moving on, in 1978, to incorporate a more conventional narrative style, he made Telling Tales, a film that centred on two couples with opposing interests in an industrial strike, his next film and Sisters, made in 1980, at the time of the Yorkshire Ripper investigation, centred on the murder of a prostitute and looked at male attitudes to women across the social spectrum.

The film was entered into the 12th Moscow International Film Festival. He made two further films, Girl from the South and Waiting for Alan, before retiring as a film director to concentrate on educational activities and writing. In 1990 he set up the Northern School of Film & Television at Leeds Metropolitan University, in 1992 became the first non-Dutch director of the Netherlands’s national film school, the Netherlands Film and Television Academy. In 1997 he went to Hong Kong to set up a new School of Film & Television for the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, he remained in Hong Kong for eight years as the first Dean of the new school, with just one year back in the Netherlands to set up – and hold – the post of script commissioner or Intendant for the Netherlands Film Fund, when his commissions included scripts for two successful Dutch feature films Minoes and De Storm. In September 2005 he became inaugural holder of the Greg Dyke Chair of Film & Television at the University of York and the university’s first Professor of Film & Television.

He has written three published novels – with particular interest being shown in his novel Back in 1984 – and released two CDs of songs. In the 1970s, in addition to filmmaking, he worked as a performer and musician with the Red Ladder Theatre Company in Leeds. Writing in 1977 about the early films, American critic Deke Dusinberre said: "A serious and thorough artist, Woolley’s films collectively encompass all those issues which are at the centre of current critical debate”. Reviewing Telling Tales in Time Out magazine for a 1986 National Film Theatre retrospective, Nigel Pollitt wrote: “A rare chance to see this ambitious and hilarious drama of class relations and the relative power of narrative forms”. Opinions of Brothers and Sisters ranged from Virginia Dignam's enthusiasm in the UK’s Morning Star newspaper, through Philip French's approval in The Observer, to the more reticent tone of Andrew Tudor in New Society weekly The film Girl from the South won the CIFEJ Award at the Laon International Film Festival for Young People in 1989, and, in 2011, the British Film Institute issued a DVD boxset of Woolley's key work under the title An Unflinching Eye, stating, "this collection offers the long-overdue opportunity to experience first hand the power of extraordinary and unique films".
