New Stevenage manager Teddy Sheringham ready for step into the unknown

21 May 2015

Teddy Sheringham is relishing his first managerial role after being confirmed as the new Stevenage boss.

Sheringham, who scored more than 350 goals during his playing days, will now look to transfer his vast knowledge of the game into his new position.

The 49-year-old also won 51 caps for England in a 25-year playing career, and is keen to get started with Boro.

“To say that I am excited is an understatement and I am really looking forward to next season,” the former striker told the club's official website.

“The aim is to do better than last season. I know that is a big aim but that should be the aim for the football club, whichever football club you are at.

“To get into the Play-Offs was a great season so the players are performing well which is a good thing to take into next year.”

Sheringham may be relatively new to dugout life, but he has plenty of familiar faces working around him at the Lamex Stadium.

“I know a few of the boys, the likes of Chris Day were at Tottenham, I think Charlie Lee might have kicked me once or twice when he was coming through the ranks. I know Ronnie Henry too,” Sheringham added.

“I know what to expect from a football match, there are different ways to win a football match and I am sure working for Stevenage I am going to see every different way it can be done. That is up to me to work out the best way for this club to play and produce results.”
