Sheringham pulls on boots again for Kent minnows
Friday 11 September 2009
Former England striker Teddy Sheringham has signed for Beckenham Town after coming out of retirement.
The 43-year-old has joined the Kent League side, who compete in the ninth tier of English football, 16 months after leaving Colchester United and may make his debut against Banstead Athletic in the FA Vase next weekend, although he has been included in Beckenham's squad for the league game at Holmesdale tomorrow.
"It's a great time for the club and local football community," chairman Chris McCarthy said following Sheringham's appearance in a charity match last week.
