Peter Crouch: I’m gutted to miss out on Liverpool charity match

The Stoke City forward has admitted that he would have relished stepping out at Anfield, but may not have been selected.

Liverpool fans are set to be taken down memory lane this Sunday, with a number of former players gracing Anfield for a charity fixture.

With Reds legends Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher captaining a team each, the game has been organised by the Liverpool FC Foundation to raise much-needed funds for local charities.

With the likes of Fernando Torres, Luis Suarez and other former Anfield favourites set to grace the pitch alongside a number of guest players and some of the current Liverpool crop, it will be a game to remember for the Kop.

However, one ex-Liverpool striker that won’t be strutting his stuff at the weekend is Peter Crouch, who has taken to social media to admit that he would have relished the opportunity to turn out on Sunday.

Crouch signed for the Reds from Southampton in 2005, and scored 22 Premier League goals for the Merseysiders in three seasons before being shipped out to Portsmouth.

The lofty centre forward was in the news recently after equalling Alan Shearer’s record of 46 headed goals in the English top flight.
