Alan Shearer Poised For A Return To St.James’ Park

8 years ago

The bar named after him may be disappearing from St.James’ Park but Alan Shearer could soon be back in person on the pitch where he score so many of his record breaking 206 goals for Newcastle United.

Steve Harper has revealed that the final touches are being put to his forthcoming testimonial, with Shearer being one of the star attractions.

A provisional date of September 11 has been set and Alan Shearer head an impressive proposed cast list which also includes Paolo Maldini, Daveed Ginola and Andriy Shevchenko.

Additional names that Steve Harper has released as likely participants are Costacurta, Vieri and Franco Baresi, the 11th Spetember falls in an international week so would be ideal.

While our former keeper may at times still think about ‘what might have been’ if he’d spread his wings and had a go elsewhere, the proposed line-up of international stars is testament to the regard he is held in within the game.
