Spurs and Chelsea legend Jimmy Greaves to manage Witham tonight

England hero set to lead Witham Town for one game at Mile End Stadium

SPURS and Chelsea legend Jimmy Greaves will manage Essex Senior side Witham Town against Bethnal Green United for one game only tonight.

The former England international is deputising for his son Danny, who is the regular boss for the semi-professional Essex side.

The game will take place at Mile End Stadium in Rhodeswell Road, Poplar, with kick off at 7.45pm.

It’s an important match for both teams and second-place Bethnal Green will go top with a win, while Witham will keep their title aspirations going if they manage to capture the three points.
