Sheffield Wednesday legend about making a surprising comeback to football at the age of 62…

It has been quite some time since the former Sheffield Wednesday, Newcastle United, and Tottenham Hotspur star participated in a competitive match.

However, Waddle has a special connection with Hallam FC, and given the club’s ongoing injury crisis in the Northern Counties East League Premier Division, there’s talk of him returning to the pitch.

Alan Biggs, a renowned Sheffield football journalist and Star Sport columnist, has suggested that Chris Waddle might not need much convincing to join the team, especially after Hallam FC had to play with only 10 players due to another setback in the Senior Cup defeat to Stocksbridge Park Steels on Tuesday night.

Biggs shared on Twitter following the match, “It’s understood that there is a strong likelihood of Chris Waddle making a return to semi-professional football just two months before his 63rd birthday.

Hallam FC is contemplating reaching out to the former Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur, Sheffield Wednesday, and England star due to their extensive list of injuries.

Waddle has a close relationship with Hallam FC, which is at step nine in the football pyramid, and it’s believed he won’t require much persuasion.

It seems like he never completely retired from the game. Hallam is currently dealing with at least six players suffering from significant injuries and had to play with only 10 men in their latest match tonight.”

Hallam is scheduled to play in the FA Vase this weekend, where they will face Coventry United on Saturday afternoon. It remains to be seen whether we might witness the return of the familiar face of Chris Waddle in a blue and white shirt once more.
