Former Columbian World Cup Star Tino Asprilla and the brother of the late ‘Entertainers’ Goalkeeper Pavel Srnicek, Milan will be flying to play for Newcastle Legends in April at the International Stadium.
Asprilla will also be the guest speaker at a ‘Legends’ Dinner at the Hilton Newcastle/Gateshead after the game on the 7th April which all players will attend. Tickets for that event are available from www.newcastlelegends.com
Tino said: “I love coming back to my second home Newcastle.
“Steve Watson has told me I need to be fit because Gateshead have a younger squad so I am working hard every day.
“I am also still working hard at socialising so that I will still fit in on the Quayside. Joking aside I cannot wait to pull on the black and white shirt again and entertain them. I am definitely taking any penalties.”
Milan Srnicek is delighted to be coming back to Tyneside too.
“It is nice to be asked to play again for Newcastle Legends and I know Pavel will be smiling at my pilgrimage to his spiritual home,” he said.
“I enjoyed my last game but was very nervous because I am not a natural keeper so I am hoping for an outfield role on this occasion!”
Tickets for the Gateshead Legends v Newcastle Legends match are available online now (£10 adults, £5 children).
