Now, having been without a club since ending a stint as a player-coach in China last year, Gascoigne will help the Lincolnshire club in their forthcoming League two campaign.
Gascoigne was one of the star performers as England so nearly qualified for a first World Cup final on foreign soil, but what are his ten other team-mates from that fateful day in Turin up to now?
The Leicester-born goalkeeper ended his playing career at Leyton Orient in 1997 where he notched up a total of 1000 league appearances. Nowadays, the former England goalkeeper does a lot of after-dinner speeches.
