Ask Maurice!

Legendary double-winner Maurice Norman is next up for Hotspur magazine's 'Big Q and A' feature - all we need now are your questions!

One of the great defenders of his era, Maurice joined us from Norwich City in 1955 and was a cornerstone of Bill Nicholson's all-conquering side of the early 1960s.

He missed just one game in the 1960-61 double season and followed up with the FA Cup in 1962 and UEFA Cup Winners Cup in 1963. He went on to play over 400 times for us.

He was a member of England's 1958 World Cup squad before eventually earning the first of his 23 caps in 1962.

Unfortunately, his career came to an abrupt end when he suffered a terrible broken leg in a friendly against a Hungarian Select XI in November 1965, aged just 31.

Despite a two-year fight back to fitness, he never played again.
