I was interested to read in Hotspur magazine recently about a fan making his Spurs ‘debut’ at a game that was abandoned. Because I was at that very same match and it was also my first time!
Looking back, I suppose those of us there became a little bit of Spurs history as it just looked as if we would never get to play Everton at White Hart Lane in season 1969-70 because the fixture was postponed twice.
I believe that the original date had been pencilled in for late November but heavy snow caused the game to be cancelled. It was re-arranged for mid-December and this was to be my first game.
I was there with my father, brother and a neighbour, standing on the Shelf. As I recall it was snowing heavily that night too but I can’t be sure of that. Can anyone else remember?
