Former Spurs and Manchester United striker, now manager of Stevenage, could be in squad to face Welwyn this week
Teddy Sheringham has registered himself as a player at the age of 49, Stevenage have confirmed.
The Boro manager, along with assistant Kevin Watson, has registered himself ahead of Wednesday’s Herts Senior Cup tie at Welwyn Garden City.
The ex-Spurs and Manchester United striker retired from the game in 2008, and this summer was appointed as Stevenage’s new manager to replace Graham Westley. Since his retirement as a professional player, he has continued to play for Spurs Legends.
Boro are expected to field a mixture of youth and first-team players at Herns Lane on Wednesday.

These factors could have prompted Boro’s boss to put himself forward as a player if needed on Wednesday.
