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).

I was visiting the Spurs training ground with my Dad for the first time and as we pulled up I saw Gazza walking across the car park at then Mill Hill. I ran up to him with my autograph book and he signed it. At the time he was also eating a mince pie and it dropped out of his hand all over the autograph. I couldn’t believe it, he said sorry and we both saw the funny side of it. Its something I won’t forget!

I have been fortunate enough to meet numerous players outside the ground after matches, and, during last season I met Jimmy Hill outside the ground, although why he was there I don't know? I had my photo taken with him and then sent it to Loaded magazine, where it has been published in this months edition.

Meeting Jurgen Klinsmann at Old Trafford during one of Germany’s training sessions. He autographed my Spurs shirt and was a very nice and down to earth bloke. I still have this shirt today. I also met Gazza a few years back at the Lodge, Mil Hill.
