Deano's mission

Posted on 9 March 2002  - 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).

Dean Richards has a whole host of reasons to want to topple Chelsea and take a step nearer to the FA Cup Final on Sunday.

To start he wants to make up for missing our run to the Worthington Cup Final.

'Deano' was cup-tied after playing in the competition for Southampton before moving to the Lane and therefore he missed the semi-final against Chelsea and the final at Cardiff.

Then he'll turn the clock back to 1998 when he was a key member in the Wolves side that went to the semi-finals of the FA Cup. It was the furthest he's been in the competition - no need to remind him or Spurs fans who ended that run.

Dean confessed: "It was disappointing to miss out on the Worthington Cup, going all the way to the final and this would go some way to making amends for missing that.

"I got to semi-final with Wolves and got beat by Arsenal in the semi-final.

"It would be nice to go all the way. That's the reason I came to Spurs, to be involved in tournaments, get to finals and hopefully win trophies.

"It's a tough game against Chelsea but if we can overcome this hurdle we'll be confident of going all the way."
