Myhre's future career plans

Once upon a time footballers who didn't carry on in some capacity in the game became publicans or newsagents or betting shop managers after they left. These days greater wealth gives them a wider range of options.

Even so, Tommy Myhre's choice of future career is unusual. He would like to be an art dealer when he stops being a keeper. He admits, 'I used to paint, but I was useless.' However, he has accumulated a big collection of paintings over the last fifeen years, although there is no indication of his taste.

It must be something about keepers. Calamity James is a reasonably accomplished artist and quite a good art critic, having presented a television programme from the Lowrie in Manchester.

It's probably the most unusual interest for a Charlton player since Fish writing poetry.
