Newcastle legend Paul Gascoigne scores wonder goal in friendly

Paul Gascoigne made a surprise appearance in a charity game last weekend, turning out for a team of Newcastle United legends to raise money for St Oswald's Hospice in Gateshead.

Gazza managed two short run-outs either side of half-time in the Pav Cup exhibition match, alongside Peter Beardsley, Keith Gillespie and Steve Howey.

The 50-year-old even managed a goal, rolling back the years to give the opposing goalkeeper the eyes before slotting the ball though his legs and into the back of the net.

The 500-strong crowd witnessed the Toon old-boys canter to a 7-1 win, thanks largely to a hat trick from Gillespie.

The Pav Cup is an annual event played in memory of Pavel Srnicek, the former Newcastle goalkeeper who died in 2015.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
