Premier League striker of the 90s out of retirement


The former England international will put his boots back on

One time Premier League centre forward Teddy Sheringham has registered himself as a player for Stevenage at the age of 49.

Sheringham, who has previously played for Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United, was named as the manager of League Two side Stevenage in the summer.

Now he is preparing to play for his team in the Herts Senior Challenge Cup match against Welwyn Garden City on Wednesday evening.

Sheringham’s 41-year old assistant manager Kevin Watson has also registered himself and could also feature in the game.

25-year playing career

Sheringham’s footballing career spanned over 25 years in which he enjoyed his fair share of success; he was part of Manchester United’s treble winning side of 1999 (Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League).

He hung up his boots in 2008 after a short-term spell with Colchester United and proceeded into coaching. He spent last season at West Ham as Sam Allardyce’s attacking coach, before being offered the job at Broadhall Park during pre-season.

The Boro have somewhat of a reputation of having ‘old’ players in their squad, after goalkeeping coach Dave Beasant appeared on the bench for their play-off matches against Southend United last campaign.
