2014: Craig Bellamy makes Premier League history

Craig Bellamy became the first player to score for seven different clubs in the Premier League when he struck in Cardiff City's 2-1 win over Norwich City.

The Welshman equalised from debutant Wilfried Zaha’s pass as Cardiff fought back to claim their first win under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Bellamy had previously scored in the competition for Coventry City, Newcastle United, Blackburn Rovers, Liverpool, West Ham United and Manchester City.

He retired at the end of that 2013/14 season, having scored 81 PL goals in total across 294 appearances.
