Darren ‘Sicknote’ Anderton Pulls Out of Tottenham’s Half-Time Crossbar Challenge…Due to Injury

He was infamous for being constantly injured during his playing career, and it seems as though not much has changed for Darren Anderton.

The former England international was given the nickname of ‘Sicknote’ because of his propensity to constantly pick up injuries and find himself on the treatment table, in a career that saw him play for five different clubs and pick up 30 international caps for his country.

The midfielder is best known for his spell at Tottenham, where he managed more than 300 games for the north London club over a 12 year period, winning the League Cup in 1999.

And Anderton was back at White Heart Lane on Monday night to take in his old side’s win over Aston Villa, and was apparently asked to take part in the half-time crossbar challenge alongside some punters pulled from the stands.

But guess what? Anderton, surprise surprise, was injured…

Yip, he couldn’t even manage one kick of a ball in front of his old fans. Poor Darren.

Sicknote, indeed.
