Southall caps under the hammer
Neville Southall
Southall: still looking for a job in football management
Wales goalkeeping legend Neville Southall is hoping that a good home is found for his international caps which are being auctioned in London on Monday.

Seven of his caps, which represent several games over various seasons, go under the hammer at the Sports Cafe in Haymarket.

Former Everton favourite Southall played 92 times for Wales and is the most capped player in the nation's history.

But he is now out of work and is desperate for a job in football management.

Southall, 43, will not profit from the sale of his memorabilia because they now belong to his friend Dave Davies.

He was given the caps by Southall as a thank you for helping him over the years.

"I need to work because I have a mortgage to pay," said Southall, who currently coaches the Wales Under-19 team.

"I have played in every division, so I believe I have some valuable experience to give back to the game.

"I am determined to succeed - I just need someone to give me the chance."

Earlier this season Southall played for Rhyl in the League of Wales, and says he would be more than happy to manage a team in that league.

The auction will also include medals caps and shirts belonging to former Arsenal double-winning captain Frank McLintock, and memorabilia once owned by Sir Geoff Hurst.
