A RETIRED former England and Manchester United player could be returning to the pitch to play for a local football club, writes Kate Nelson.

Striker Teddy Sheringham MBE is holding talks with Beckenham Town Football Club to play for its Carlsberg FA Vase games this season.

Beckenham Town Chairman Chris McCarthy said: "I'm having talks with Teddy about the situation but these things do take a lot of sorting out. I'm really hopeful that between us we can make the situation become a reality. It's an enormously exciting prospect".

The 43-year-old dated former Miss England and Miss Great Britain Danielle Lloyd for a year from February 2006 but they split up following her stint on Celebrity Big Brother after she was embroiled in the Shilpa Shetty race row.

Mr Sheringham retired from football at the end of the 2007/8 season with Colchester United. At the peak of his career he helped Manchester United win the treble in the 1998/9 season, scoring two last minute goals in the European Cup final against Bayern Munich. He has also played for Millwall, Nottingham Forest, Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham and Portsmouth football clubs.
