Spartans’ keeper Peter Jeffries is set for a staring tv role, but not this time in an actual match.
He is to make a special guest appearance on ‘A Question of Sport’ in a FA Cup edition of the show. He’ll be trying to deny a host of famous names scoring past him from the penalty spot!
The show, which will be broadcast on 2nd January 2015 (BBC One, 19.30), will see Peter between the sticks facing the likes of Alan Shearer, Phil Neville, Trevor Sinclair and Jason Roberts.
Peter commented: “It’s a great thrill and privilege to be asked to be part of the programme. I couldn’t believe it when I got the call. Facing players like those will be an amazing experience!
“Alan Shearer was in our dressing room before our recent FA Cup tie at Hartlepool. That was incredible enough but facing him in a penalty shoot tops it. I can’t wait.”
