Down at Margate with 'Tel' and 'Nev'

Former Spurs and Wales midfielder Terry Yorath has seen many things in his proud career. But life as manager at non-league Margate is a whole new experience!

Yorath was with us between 1979 and 1981 when, as a senior professional, he backed up the midfield talents of newly-arrived Ossie Ardiles and Ricky Villa and recalls Glenn Hoddle as "an incredible footballer."

Now, at the age of 59, he been tracked down by hotspur magazine in the semi-pro ranks of the Ryman Premier League where he and his former Wales team mate Neville Southall run ‘The Gate.'

And his greatest memory of life at Spurs? Amazingly it was the Friday morning training sessions in the gym when manager Keith Burkinshaw joined in and seemed to spend his time trying to kick right-back Terry Naylor off the court!

"They'd go in to tackle each other like their lives depended on it," recalled Terry with a smile. "Everyone knew it was going to happen...Keith always came out covered in scrapes!"

Read Yorath's views on the current Spurs' set-up in the latest issue of hotspur, the magazine that is a ‘must for all Spurs fans.
