Stevenage boss played for Manchester United and Spurs, but says the team Boro face this weekend gave him his ‘best time’ in the game

Stevenage return to England in the next 24 hours following their Spanish training camp - and up next for Teddy Sheringham is a clash against one of his former sides.

Millwall are Boro’s opponents this Saturday at the Lamex Stadium as Sheringham and his men hope to get a victory over League One opposition.

So far this summer Boro have beaten both Wealdstone and St Neots Town, but last week they tripped up 3-0 at home to another one of Sheringham’s former teams, Nottingham Forest.

And yet for a man who has won Premier League titles and the Champions League with Manchester United in 1999, Sheringham says that his eight years spent at Millwall at the start of his career were his ‘best’ in football.

The former West Ham and Spurs striker said: “[They were] fantastic memories for me at Millwall.

“A lot of people ask me what was my best time in football expecting me to say Tottenham or Man Utd but my time growing up and coming through the ranks at Millwall and having such a great time and getting the club into the top division and the Premier Division for the first time in the club’s history was monumental for me.
