Teddy Sheringham became a pivotal figure in Manchester United’s dramatic turnaround during the 1999 Champions League final, securing a 2-1 victory. His goal, along with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s, in injury time against Bayern Munich marked a historic Treble for the “Red Devils.”
Sheringham’s legacy at Old Trafford is firmly established after his four remarkable years with the club. The seasoned striker also had stints with Millwall, Nottingham Forest, Tottenham, Portsmouth, and West Ham over the course of his extensive career.
Teddy Sheringham’s son, Charlie, followed in his father’s footsteps and pursued a professional football career. Playing for Millwall and Tottenham as a teenager, Charlie garnered attention from Crystal Palace’s leadership. However, he struggled to make a lasting impression in the first team at Selhurst Park.
In 2008, Charlie made a move to Cambridge City, where he later emerged as Welling United’s top scorer in the sixth tier during the following campaign, netting an impressive 26 goals. Subsequent ventures with Bishop’s Stortford, Histon, and Dartford ensued as he navigated through clubs outside England’s professional football pyramid.
Bournemouth, then in League One, took notice of Charlie’s performances, leading to an 18-month contract on the South Coast. Unfortunately, his promising run was interrupted by a serious leg injury after six appearances and one goal.
Following a necessary operation, Charlie faced challenges in resuming his ascent in the football league, prompting transfers across various clubs. Stints with Wimbledon, Salisbury City, Ebbsfleet United, and Hemel Hempstead preceded an unexpected move to Bangladeshi club Saif in 2017. His contribution helped Saif qualify for the AFC Cup, akin to the Europa League in Asia.
Returning to England in 2018, Charlie had brief spells with Hemel Hempstead, Leatherhead, and Chelmsford City before rejoining Dartford in 2022 for a fourth tenure with the club. Currently playing in the National League South, he has relinquished the dream of representing the England national team.
