Former international stars to turn out for Wembley FC

David Seaman, Ray Parlour, Martin Keown, Graeme Le Saux, Brian McBride and former Argentina star Claudio Caniggia will come out of retirement to play for Wembley FC in next season’s FA Cup.

Former Arsenal trio Seaman, Parlour and Keown will be reunited when they turn out for the non-League side, and they will be joined by ex-Chelsea star Le Saux and former Fulham target man McBride.

Cannigia will also be involved when the non-League outfit play in an extra preliminary round tie on 11 August.

The club have appointed Seaman as goalkeeping coach and recently installed Terry Venables as technical director.

Parlour, 39, said: “I’ve always believed grassroots football is essential to the lifeblood of the game.

“When I got the call asking if I would like to come out of retirement and help raise its profile I jumped at the chance.

“I’m looking forward to working with Terry Venables again and helping a group of talented footballers achieve their dreams of playing in The FA Cup and seeing how far they can go in the tournament.”
