Brian was nominated by Michael Holder and Stephen Ward when they met him last year. Brian Mann, 79, was the first Hotspur Hero to be recognised at Tottenham Hotspur’s recent match against Leicester City, having been attending matches at White Hart Lane since 1946. He was accompanied by his wife and grandsons at the match, where he was presented with a special gift pitchside by Cliff Jones, a member of the Club’s 1961 Double-winning side. An overwhelmed Brian said: “Tottenham Hotspur is the love of my life, it means so much to me to see Spurs win. We’re a big family here, we all stick together and I consider myself ‘one of our own’. I cannot thank the Club enough for giving me this experience to share with my family. It is something I will never forget."
