Ray was joined by family, friends and by other legendary ex-players and supporters at the sell-out event to celebrate the career of our former goalkeeper – a loyal servant to us as a player between 1981 and 1987 and again as a coach in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Capped 61 times by England, Ray Clemence played over 300 games in all competitions at White Hart Lane. In his first season, 1981/1982, although we were beaten by Liverpool in extra time of the League Cup Final, we went on to reach the semi-finals of the European Cup Winners' Cup and finished fourth in Division One before winning the FA Cup beating Queens Park Rangers. Following the end of his playing career, Ray became one of the Club’s coaches under Terry Venables.An FA Cup winner with us in 1982, having won countless trophies during his previous time with Liverpool, Ray was thrilled to be recognised in such a way.“It’s fantastic!” beamed the Skegness-born stopper, who made 330 appearances in our colours. “You look at those Hall of Fame photos downstairs and there’s some magnificent players there going back through the years, so for me to be nominated and inducted tonight is very special and a proud moment. Thankfully there’s a few members of my family here as well so it’s a great night.”Former player and manager Glenn Hoddle was one of the special guests present on the night and he was delighted to see our former goalkeeper join him in our Hall of Fame. “Congratulations to Ray – it’s well deserved,” Glenn said. “I was fortunate enough to have my induction about six or seven years ago and again it was a lovely evening for the family and friends.
