EX-ARSENAL goalkeeper Graham Stack has come out of retirement to play for SEVENTH TIER side Chesham United.
The 40-year-old will step in for Chesham's No1 goalie, who is unavailable to play.

Stack, who is Watford's Head of Academy Goalkeeping, said on Twitter: "So today I’m coming out of retirement!
"The Chesham GK is unavailable to play so I will be deputising in his absence.
"Should be a lovely day! Up the Generals!"
