Sheringham released

Sheringham released

AFC Bournemouth have released striker Charlie Sheringham following the end of his contract.

Charlie Sheringham is the son of former Manchester United, Portsmouth and England striker Teddy Sheringham and has been linked with a move to Fratton Park following Pompey's relegation to League Two.

Sheringham came through the youth set-ups at Millwall and Tottenham before he went on to sign for Ipswich.

Sheringham was part of the Ipswich Town Youth Team which won the FA Youth Cup in 2005.

After he was released by Ipswich he spent the next two seasons with Crystal Palace, but was released two years later after failing to break into the first team.

Sheringham dropped into the non-league, but was signed by the Cherries in October 2011 after scoring 12 goals for Dartford during the opening months of the Conference South season.

He started twice and made an additional five substitute appearances.

The Cherries striker sustained a foot injury scoring against Brentford on Boxing Day 2011, scoring his only Cherries goal. The initial x-ray was unclear but a later MRI scan revealed a fracture to the navicular.

In January 2012 he had an operation to insert two screws in to fix the bone and he spent three months in a protective boot, in May he had hoped that his recovery was on course for him to return to full training during pre-season, however when he stopped wearing the protective air boot he began to feel discomfort in one of his toes during light jogging.

To give the toe time to settle, Sheringham eased off on impact work and just continued light exercises. However whilst the problem with his toe then cleared, he then started experiencing discomfort in his heel and while the use of a specialised anti-gravity treadmill, helped with his rehab, in July he was set to go and have a biomechanical assessment review regarding his heel and he continued his rehabilitation programme with physio Steve Hard and received intensive treatment at the Football Association's recently opened new headquarters at St George`s Park.

Sheringham underwent a further operation to attempt to cure his foot injury in November and made his long awaited return after he was named in an AFC Bournemouth XI that played against AFC Totton in March and played the first half of the Hampshire Senior Cup tie before going on to re-join Dartford on loan.

He made ten appearances scoring four times, but on his return to Dean Court he was released following the end of his contract.

Howe told afcb.co.uk...

"Through no fault of his own, Charlie was very unfortunate to sustain a serious injury just a couple of months after he had moved here and he missed a lot of football, Thankfully, he returned towards the end of this season and did really well during a loan spell with Dartford.

"We have reluctantly decided to let him go but it was a very tough decision. We just felt that following promotion to the Championship and with the current strikers we have in the squad, Charlie was probably not going to get enough game time.

"He was a pleasure to work with during our time here and we would like to wish him all the best for the future."

Football is a cruel game. Without his injury i think he could have been really good for us. Think he would score quite well in league 2 and couls move back up eventually.
