Legend Sheringham Set To Retire

Colchester`s Teddy Sheringham, formally of Man United & Spurs, will announce he will retire from professional football at the end of the season tomorrow.

The 41-year-old will tell Sky Sports of his decision before playing out the final months of his contract with Colchester, although the once England legend is sure to receive many plaudits.

Sheringham has had an up and down season in Essex, but has scored three goals and will play his last game for the club in May.
He has scored 349 career goals and helped Manchester United to a unique treble triumph in 1999, and will be remembered for his role in an England shirt with Alan Shearer at Euro `96.

He also played a pivotal role in the England game against Greece when England won their group as he scored the first goal in that 2-2 draw.

More reaction to this news will come shortly on Vital Colchester.

and Pompey. Harry signed him from Spurs in the summer of 2003, for what was our debut season in the Prem. He was still class. God bless Teddy.

Definitely a loss to the game, it'll be sad not to see him around but hopefully he'll be a successful manager one day

He has supported Tottenham since he was a kid and has said that if he does manage, it'll be there!

Millwall will never forget Teddy! We were disappointed he didnt come back to where it all started to finish his career, as he would have no doubt been offered a coaching role. We may have even prolonged his playing career a little longer too, in league 1 albeit, mind you, i guess at Colchester they are dangling him the same carrot....

I'm pretty sure he could have got on the coaching staff here at Layer Road, and when Teddy says rerire from professional football I've got a feeling he might take up a semi-pro role in Denmark with his son. I think if he'd have got about 10 goals by now and Col U were top six, maybe he would have used an option that he wrote in the deal.
