United great Sheringham’s son joins Saif Sporting
English striker Charlie Sheringham, son of former English Premier League star Teddy Sheringham, joined newcomer and big-budget outfit Saif Sporting Club. He is likely to enjoy his first Bangladesh Premier League experience Monday. The 29-year old footballer officially signed for the premier league powerhouse Thursday, a day before the mid-season transfer deadline day, but before that, the former League One striker underwent a 10-day trial at the club from October 25 to November 5 this year. Charlie was part of Saif Sporting’s practice match against Lt. Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club Limited last week and after getting the green signal from the club, Charlie flew back to Europe and returned to Dhaka with necessary clearance and documents from previous club, Hemel Hempstead Town and the England Football Association. After signing Haitian forward Wedson Anselme, who is also a proven BPL scorer, for a record salary of $13,000, Charlie’s recruit would cost the club less than $10,000 per month. As a club can’t register more than three foreign players, Colombian forward Lordaba Escarpeta had to make way for Wedson and Charlie while the other Colombian, Hember Valencia, remained with the squad. Saif Sporting managing director Nasiruddin Chowdhury told Dhaka Tribune that they had been looking for a quality striker since February. He said, "We scored 14 goals in the first six matches but in the last five games we scored only two goals. After analysing the available options we thought he (Charlie) would suit us." Nasiruddin also informed that whereas the length of Wedson's contract will expire at the end of the premier league, Charlie’s deal will keep him at the club from a period of eight months to a year, depending on the club's participation in the AFC Cup next year. Charlie spent his youth career at his father's former clubs Millwall and Tottenham Hotspur, followed by a spell at Championship side Ipswich Town, where he played the FA Youth Cup final against Southampton in 2005. He joined League One side Bournemouth in 2011 before moving to League Two outfit AFC Wimbledon in 2013. He joined non-league club Ebbsfleet United the following year and spent much of last season on loan at Hemel. His contract expired on June 30 and since then, he had been a free agent.
