Graham Roberts travelled to the other side of the world last week to meet members of our New Zealand Official Spurs Supporters’ Club in Auckland.

One of 164 clubs we have across the globe, NZ Spurs host an annual legends event and were delighted to welcome the two-time FA Cup winner and 1984 UEFA Cup hero.

During his stay, ‘Robbo’ took part in a Q&A evening with NZ Spurs members, sharing many anecdotes from his illustrious playing career, and took in an Auckland City FC match as a special guest of their Chairman.

Paul Ruscoe of NZ Spurs said: “We have been inundated with letters of gratitude from supporters, all of whom commenting on Graham’s humour, warmth and willingness to spend time with them. One letter even referred to the evening as the single biggest Spurs-related event since a pre-season tour brought the first team here in 1976. With kick-off times often in the early hours of the morning, just watching Spurs is difficult for many, so we were incredibly thankful for the time Graham spent with us.”
