HISTORY OF THE CLUB
INDUCTED INTO THE HALL OF FAME
A modern-day striking great, Teddy enjoyed two spells at the Lane.
He rightly takes his place in the top 10 of the club's all-time goalscorers - he's currently eighth - with 124 goals in 277 appearances.
So intelligent in his movement on and off the ball, with an eye for a pass and a goal, Teddy kept himself in such good shape that he played league football until he was 42.
Capped 51 times by England, scoring 11 goals, Teddy also played in the 2002 World Cup at the age of 36.
Having impressed coming through the ranks at Millwall and then Nottingham Forest, Teddy initially joined us from Forest in August, 1992.
Highlights of his first spell included his partnerships with Jurgen Klinsmann (94-95) and Chris Armstrong (95-96). The season with Klinsmann is particularly fondly remembered as we reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup, both players scoring in a memorable quarter-final win against Liverpool at Anfield.
Teddy moved to Manchester United in 1996 aged 31 and went on to win a host of titles, including the Premier League in 1999, 2000 and 2001 and the treble of Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League in 1999, where he famously scored in the final as United came back late to beat Bayern Munich.
Teddy returned to the Lane when he was signed by Glenn Hoddle in the summer of 2001. He helped us to the League Cup final in his first season back before leaving for Portsmouth.
He went on to have spells at West Ham and Colchester United before retiring at the end of the 2007-08 season.
