Claim to fame: Signed shirt

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).

From Ross Taylor, Barrow-in Furness: In the summer when Sir Les and Ginola signed for Spurs (1997) I was on holiday in London.

It was July and we went to visit the Lane and I bought the new home shirt from the club shop. The lady behind the counter informed us that the team were having the team photo shoot and they were due to leave the ground in the next half an hour.

I went to the corner shop and bought a marker and as every Spurs player left the ground they signed my shirt. It was the best day of my life, Ruel Fox was in Sol's car and he said he was looking for a new car from America. The best car was Les'. I have got photo's but I have not got a scanner to send them to you.
