Claim to fame: A waxwork Lineker

Posted on 21 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).

From Prem George, South Africa

Sadly, the closest claim to fame for me is the picture I took with Gary Lineker at Madame Tussauds - I am a very ardent fan of him and was quite pleased at this opportunity. What was even more enthralling was that on returning home to South Africa, many people who saw my photos really believed I had scooped a photograph with the legend himself.

At the moment my most favourite player in the entire premier league is Teddy Sheringham - he has been my favourite player for a very long time and I was deeply upset when he went to Manchester United. However, I am now pleased as punch that he is back at the Lane and it would be a dream come true for me to meet him and have a few photos with him.

I went to my one and only premier match at White Hart Lane on the 2nd of January 2001 when Spurs played Newcastle and I had the time of my life and did not want to leave the ground.

It would have been even better if Teddy was playing that day. Now that he is back I will definitely have to make another trip and seal the dream.
