Martin Chivers and his All-Star Spurs XI will be taking us back to our roots in a ceremonial match against Latymer Old Boys at Botany Bay Cricket Club, Enfield, on Sunday.One of the Club’s first recorded fixtures was against a team called Latymer in 1883, and the Enfield-based side feature prominently in Spurs’ early history. We were then known as Hotspur.

Our former striker Chivers will be joined by a squad packed full of Spurs legends, including Tony Galvin, Ralph Coates and Steve Sedgley.

Sunday’s event will also mark a celebration of Latymer Old Boys’ own history, with the main event being preceded by a match between the LOB club’s Under-14 side and Latymer School Under-14.

Gates open at Botany Bay on Sunday at 12.30pm, with the Spurs match kicking-off at 3pm. Admission on the day is by programme only at a cost of £5.
