TEDDY Sheringham will retire from professional football at the end of this season.
Ex-England striker Sheringham, who last summer became Colchester United's most high-profile signing in the club's history, made the announcement before the home match against Wolves.
The 41-year-old former Tottenham and Manchester United star is currently sidelined by a foot infection, and has only started one league game since the turn of the year.
Sheringham revealed: “After a long and fun-filled career, I have decided that this season will be my last.
