Ian Pearce was a tall and strong centre back. His professional career began in 1991 at Chelsea. In 1993 he joined Blackburn Rovers and here he formed a superb couple of centre backs alongside Colin Hendry and he won the 1994-95 Premier League being a regular starter in this season. He played less regularly during the following three seasons and left the team after 81 matches. He transferred to West Ham United where he stayed for seven seasons, winning the 1999 UEFA Intertoto Cup. He played for West Ham a total of 163 matches. He then played for several other clubs including Fulham and Southampton and retired in 2012.
Pearce's imposing size made him a tough defender to challenge. Moreover he had a very good heading ability. He was a bit slow especially on long distances and he sometimes was quite aggressive towards his opponents. He didn't dislike joining the attack occasionally even though he didn't score many goals. He wasn't technically gifted but he could send good and fast long passes from the back to trigger attacking actions.
