Teddy and Darren return
18 April 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
Teddy Sheringham and Darren Anderton are the first two former Spurs we can reveal will feature in the Ledley King Guest XI for his Testimonial match on May 12.
Our Legendary former captain will lead a Guest XI squad from his playing days to celebrate his career against the current First Team on a night sure to stir some fond memories at the Lane.
Teddy made 276 First Team appearances in a Spurs shirt during two spells with the Club, scoring 124 goals, with Darren netting 48 goals in 358 appearances in our colours.
Speaking on the announcement, Teddy said: “To play in Ledley’s testimonial is a real privilege not only because he was a wonderful player but also because he is a great guy as well.
“Ledley was a fantastic player, incredibly consistent and if he had steered clear of injuries then I think he would have played even more games for Tottenham and England – he was talked about with high praise from every England manager, they all wanted him in their team.”
Teddy’s former teammate for club and country, Darren added: “I’m really looking forward to going back to the Lane again. I haven’t played there since I left so that will be an extra bonus as well as showing my support for Ledley. He has always been a humble guy, no airs and graces, he just went out and played his football.
“There was never a settling-in period when he started out, he just breezed into the team. He was so comfortable at both centre-midfield and centre-back. He trained the same way as he played – top class.”
Keep an eye on our club channels for further updates on which other former favourites from Ledley's era will be rolling back the years on his big night.
