Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer will make a come back for the Magpies, and will re-unite with his former deadly partner Sir Les Ferdinand.
NEWCASTLE United heroes Alan Shearer and Les Ferdinand are set to resume the strike partnership which saw them terrorise defences in the mid-90s for a special charity for an aid match of The Prince’s Trust and is just one of many special sporting activities which have been organised to raise vital funds for the charity at St. James’ Park.
The Official site quotes that they will be joined by former United favourites like Peter Beardsley, John Beresford, Philippe Albert, Marc Hottiger, Rob Lee, Warren Barton, Lee Clark and David Batty for the Duke of Northumberland versus the Earl of Durham match which takes place on Sunday, October 14 (kick-off 4pm).
Alan Shearer will be the manager of the Duke of Northumberland football team, while Earl of Durham manager Jack Charlton have pulled together their dream teams of the top names in North East sport to play in the event.
“The Prince’s Trust Challenge Trophy celebrity football match is the fourth, final and by far the biggest event across all four of the 2007 charity games.” Said Prince’s Trust regional council member Nigel Wilson, who is the creator and inspiration behind the challenge trophy.
