Dream Team With Tony East

Tony East, from Chelmsford, was introduced to Spurs by his father who had watched our 1951 title winning side and was a White Hart Lane regular himself when we did it again a decade later. This is his all-time best Spurs XI.

“It is all too easy to look back with rose tinted spectacles and say that our Double side was the greatest. But when you consider their calibre, it is difficult to argue with it.”

GOALKEEPER TED DITCHBURN
I’d written in both Brown and Jennings here before I settled for super Ted. Both Bill and Pat were special and just as entitled to be here but Ditchburn was a one-club man who possessed every attribute needed. My Dad adored him and always reminded me that Ted’s renowned bravery was due to him being a former boxer.
