Shearer On Why The Hard Work Was All Worthwhile

Alan Shearer has been working hard over the last few weeks and months to put on the Entertainers game yesterday between a Newcastle side and Manchester United side which ended in a 2-2 draw.

And yes Alan Shearer himself scored – so what’s new?

The match was in aid of The Alan Shearer Foundation, and it went off very well by all accounts with 6,000 fans turning up for the game:

“It’s been hard work getting everyone together over a number of months but the generosity of everyone – players, fans, everyone – has been superb.” 

“We’ve had a great crowd, it was a right laugh just watching everyone try and get into their shirts in the dressing room.”

“It’s been great having all the group back together. We had a great day at the golf day and then we had a meal and a few beers.”

“It’s been fantastic to catch up with everyone.”

Alan deserves all the accolades for setting up his Foundation for charity – and as I’ve said before it’s great that famous former players like Alan Shearer uses his name in the game to help people less well off than himself.

It’s just terrific.


Just like old times
