Peter Beardsley ready to step back into spotlight following Newcastle United exit
Peter Beardsley’s set to step out of the shadows following his Newcastle United exit – for a charity football game.
Beardsley will take part in the fourth Pavel Cup along with a clutch of fellow former Newcastle United players, including Steve Howey, Steve Harper and Olivier Bernard. The 58-year-old left his position as Under-23 coach in March to “seek a new challenge”.
The year’s Pavel Cup, held annually in memory of the late United goalkeeper Pavel Srnicek, will be staged on July 7 at Dunston UTS (1pm kick-off).
Organiser Steve Wraith said: "The Pav Cup is something the lads look forward to, and that’s because Pavel holds a special place in our hearts.”
The Pavel Cup is raising money for the Sunshine Fund. Tickets are priced £8 for adults and £4 for children. Go to newcastlelegends.com for full details.
