Visitors Book With Chris Fairclough

We catch up with former players who have dropped in at Hotspur Way recently. This month we look back on the career of centre-half Chris Fairclough who was with us between 1987-89 and now works with the FA.

The frustrating thing about England Under-21 centre-half Chris Fairclough was that he was good at Spurs – but literally outstanding for other clubs!

Chris, real name Courtney, made 70 appearances for us. And when he arrived at the Lane in June, 1987, he looked to be exactly what we needed as central defence was an ongoing problem for us at the time.
