All-Time Oldest Premier League Goal Scorers


Last week I posted the All-time Youngest Premiership goal scorers, so I thought I'd give the old guys a post this week. These are the players who at the time of their first goal scored in a season, were at least 36 years old.

Teddy Sheringham became the all-time oldest EPL goal scorer when he hit the net in a 2-1 defeat to Portsmouth at the age of 40 years and 266 days.
