Born on 2nd April 1966 in Highams Park, London.

Height : - .m (6' 0")

Weight : -  - kgs (12st 8lbs)

Started his career at Millwall as an apprentice in 1982, where he broke Derek Possee's club goalscoring record with 111 goals in his time at the Den.  His talent attracted the attention of Brian Clough and the Nottingham Forest boss bought Sheringham for 2 million in the summer of 1991.  "Edward", as he was known to Clough, scored 21 goals for Forest before Spurs snapped him up for the first time with a 2.1 million offer.  Claiming to have been a Spurs fan since a boy, Sheringham stayed for five years and scored 99 goals.

After the fall-out from the Alan Sugar-Terry Venables row settled, the striker was sold for 3.5 million to Manchester United in the close season of 1997.  He was an immediate hit at the North-West club and was successful, winning a host of medals with the Red Devils, including the Treble of the Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup in 1998-99.

Left for Spurs and made his debut against Ipswich Town 30th August 1992 at Portman Road.

Scored 37 goals in London derbies for Spurs and Millwall (up to 17.04.2001).

Teddy is the oldest Premier League player to play in an outfield position at the age of 40 years and 298 days and the oldest to score a Premier League goal at 40 years and 266 days.

Received a MBE in the Queens 2007 Birthday Honours List.

Released by West Ham United at the end of the 2006-07 season, he signed for Colchester United of the Championship as a player at the age of 41.  Decided to hang his boots up at the end of the 2007-08 season, being unable to prevent them from being relegated to League Two.

Ironically, Teddy was not fit for the last game of his professional career, as a foot injury ruled him out of Colchester's home game against Scunthorpe United on 3rd May 2008.

Teddy's son Charlie was on Tottenham's books and also played at Millwall, Tottenham, Ipswich Town, Dorchester Town, Crystal Palace and Cambridge City before signing for Welling United in June 2008.  Moved to Bishops Stortford in the summer of 2009.

In 2009, Teddy was an inductee into the English Football Hall of Fame.
