Big names lined up for Goater’s tournament

Michael Owen and Alan Shearer, the former England strikers, could be coming to a golf course near to you.

Shaun Goater, the former Manchester City striker, has revealed that plans are in the pipeline to stage a golf tournament in Bermuda next summer, featuring football legends such as former Newcastle United striker Shearer and Owen, who played for Liverpool and Real Madrid.

“I'm looking at bringing former legends to Bermuda for a weeklong golf tournament with players such as Alan Shearer and Michael Owen,” said Goater, who was inducted into the Bermuda Sports Hall of Fame at the weekend.

“These great former players are very excited about coming to Bermuda, so watch this space.”

Goater said that a date for the tournament and venue had yet to be decided.

“We are aiming for the summer,” he added. “We also haven't confirmed a golf course yet, but we are still working on that too.”

Shearer was widely regarded as one of the world's best strikers and is both Newcastle's and the Barclays Premier League's record goalscorer. He scored 283 goals in 559 appearances during his career.

His England strike partner, Owen, won a cup treble at Liverpool, the Uefa Cup, FA Cup and League Cup in 2001, before moving to Real for £8 million in 2004.
