When Paul Gascoigne signed for Boston United! A look back at the shirt

Gazza signing for League Two Boston United! 

After spending a brief spell in China for the now defunct Gansu Tianma, England legend Paul Gascoigne joined the Pilgrims as a player coach in 2004. 

This would prove to be Gazza's last club as a player, the former Newcastle, Spurs, Lazio and Rangers man would go on to make five appearances before leaving. 

Gazza played his final game for Boston United against Fulham in the Carling Cup, coming off after 67 minutes before leaving the pilgrims citing purely professional reasons.
