Claim to fame: I beat Ted at pool

Posted on 16 August 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).

Claim from Matthew Drury

Just after Teddy Sheringham had signed for Spurs from Nottingham Forest, I was on holiday in Majorca with my family. I was only fifteen at the time.

One day I was having a game of pool with my brother and in walked Teddy and his little boy Charlie and was waiting for a game. I beat my brother and told Teddy that it was winner stays on.

And so I managed to play a game of pool with Teddy Sheringham. Of course I won!

Ian Knightsbridge

My claim to fame is I played in the same Sunday league side as Jason Dozzel, who played for us and Ipswich, and also with Stuart Slater who played for West Ham and Ipswich.
