Bill Nick back at Lane

Posted on 1 June 2001  - 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).

Bill Nicholson made a welcome return to White Hart Lane this week where he was greeted in reception by — Bill Nicholson !

The great man was back at the Lane showing members of his immediate family — over on holiday from America — around his beloved ground.

Since the Eighties, a bronze bust of Bill on a tall plinth had stood in the foyer at the ground but this had been removed in recent years and placed, minus its stand, to gaze out on events from a glass cupboard.

However new chairman Daniel Levy has had it restored in all its glory on its marble plinth by the main staircase as a centrepiece of our main reception.

And Bill, who was also welcomed back to his spiritual home by Daniel Levy, was clearly delighted to see it there.

It’s good to have him back where he belongs!
