Third-tier club 6th October have signed 74-year-old Eez Eldin Bahder.

He is an unknown in Egyptian footballing circles with no history of playing for any other professional clubs.

The EFA and Badher have invited the Guinness Book of World Records to come and watch him play in a third-division match in a bid to have his record as the oldest professional player ratified.
