Bid for player plates

Posted on 26 April 2002  - 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).

Final week to make an online bid for ten plates personally painted by our players and converted into wall clocks that are up for auction with the proceeds going to the Princes Trust.

Rotary Watches supplied the club with 10 plates and sufficient paint and asked the players to paint one each. The plates have now been taken back to Rotary and changed into clocks. These will be auctioned at the Liverpool home match - our final home match this season - on Saturday April 27.

The auction will be attended by celebrity Spurs fans, boxer Chris Eubank and Radio presenter Simon Mayo and Liverpool fan Sue Johnstone, of Royle Family and Brookside fame.

Fans can bid for a plate before and on the day and all for a good cause - as Glenn Hoddle commented. "It is great that we can help the Princes Trust in such a way," agreed Glenn.

Players who painted plates include Teddy, Gus and Simon, while plates done by Glenn, Martin Chivers, Pat Jennings and John Gorman will also be up for auction. The organisers will also be bringing along the plates painted by Geri Halliwell, Liz Hurley and Pop Idols, pictured below with its presentation box.
