Brought up near the Club’s old training ground at Cheshunt, John has worked as our Head of Publications for many years having joined the club as our first Press Officer in 1983.

John commented: “It is impossible to replace Andy Porter who was always recognised as the Spurs oracle. But working with him for 30 years has taught me a lot and I am proud to follow him and to take on such a key role at a club with such a rich heritage.”

John will take a lead role in determining the historical elements for inclusion in both the new stadium and new Club museum.
