'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Harper's Testimonial Attraction

Former Newcastle United goalkeeper, Steve Harper has managed to 'scrape' together a few old heads to play in his testimonial game at St James`s Park.

Legends from teams of yesteryear from us and AC Milan of all teams, include:

Alan Shearer, David Ginola, Andriy Shevchenko, Paolo Maldini, Franco Baresi and Alessandro Costacurta.

These are among the names who look likely to take part as Harper tweeted earlier on social media.

'Another testimonial meeting done & we`re nearly there. Announcement next week hopefully. Shearer, Ginola etc v (Franco) Baresi, Maldini etc.


'(Christian) Vieri, Shevchenko, (Alessandro) Costacurta too confirmed. Just waiting for co-operation from all parties to confirm. Hopefully on Wed 11th Sep #all4charity.'


As he said, it's looking like a 11th September game under the floodlights as long as the staff at SJP get their fingers out their back end and get this sorted.

For nigh on twenty years service, it's hoped he gets a full house.
