Back Chirpy in the big race!

Posted on 26 September 2003  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Sunday sees the 5th running of the British Mascot Grand National, taking place at Huntingdon Racecourse at 13.15 in aid of the Cambridgeshire Princes' Trust.

Our very own Chirpy will be making his debut in the event, which includes nearly 80 mascots from the world of Football, Rugby, Basketball and even Pony Trekking!

Chirpy is currently 66-1 to win the race and is very much looking forward to the day: "I'm excited to be involved and will certainly be fluffing my feathers in the parade before the race. When it starts I intend to be flying down the back straight and hopefully I won't be pecked at the post!"

Chaddy the Owl from Oldham Athletic is looking to become the first mascot champion to successfully defend his coveted crown after his victory in last year's event.
