Alan Shearer

Alan Shearer became a Geordie legend the day he spurned Manchester United's advances to sign for his boyhood club Newcastle United. Prised from Blackburn Rovers for a British transfer record fee of £15million, Shearer joined Kevin Keegan's revolution and was a key member of one of the most exciting teams the English topflight has ever witnessed. With a quite remarkable 260 Premier League goals to his name, Shearer remains to this day an icon of the game, beloved on Tyneside for his unwavering ability to find the net.
