Sir Trevor David Brooking CBE (born 2 October 1948 in Barking, London) is a football player turned manager, on-air analyst, and administrator.

Brooking attended Ripple Infants School and left Ilford County High School with 11 O-levels and 2 A-levels.

He was one of the most intelligent and cerebral footballers of his generation and had a very clean disciplinary record. Directly following the Bobby Moore, Martin Peters, Geoff Hurst era, he was the player who best exemplified West Ham's traditional commitment to attractive, entertaining football (even if this style of play did not bring consistent successes). He was appointed an MBE in 1981, a CBE in 1999 and knighted in 2004. Since retiring from playing, he has taken up a number of positions in broadcasting and administration.
