80 years at the Lane

Posted on 10 March 2017  - 06:10

Paul Trevillion’s genius as an artist and illustrator has captured the world’s leading sports stars and his life both with and without the sketchbook came full circle last weekend.

On February 22, 1937, we beat Everton 4-3 in an FA Cup fourth round replay. That was the day that cemented Tottenham-born Paul’s ties with the Club forever – his first visit to White Hart Lane. Over 80 years later, he was back pitchside as we played – yes – Everton.

A whirlwind of enthusiasm, Paul was almost lost for words when Ledley King appeared from the tunnel to present him with a special ‘Trevillion 80’ home shirt.

His work has appeared in just about every national newspaper – most recently his ‘You Are The Ref’ series, first seen over 55 years ago and a regular in the likes of ‘Shoot’ and ‘Eagle’ comics, appeared again in the Guardian and Observer.
