If you’d been at the Lodge last Thursday you might have seen some new faces out on the training pitch in place of the usual squad.

Two lucky winners - Tommy Silver from Walthamstow and Dave Contini from New Malden - won the chance for them and their mates to spend the day at our training ground thanks to the Sportingbet Spurs Zone.

They got a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the Lodge before going head-to-head on the pitch to battle it out for the Sportingbet Spurs Zone trophy!

Tommy, Dave and their respective teams played a full 90 minutes at the Chigwell training facility as part of the ‘Play at the Lodge’ prize open to fans on www.spurszone.co.uk

The game was played at a high tempo throughout and there was little to separate the teams, particularly during the majority of the second half as the teams were locked at 3-3 with penalties looking like the most likely outcome.

However, an own goal from one of Tommy’s mates in the final moments separated the teams, with Dave’s men taking the trophy with a 4-3 victory.

Although it was an enjoyable afternoon all round, both sides seemed relieved to hear the sound of the final whistle, and at the end of the game, Dave was lucky enough to lift the Sportingbet Spurs Zone Cup! Check out the Spurs Zone for more pictures.

The Spurs Zone is Sportingbet’s free fan site that gives supporters the opportunity to get closer to the club by winning money can’t buy prizes at www.spurszone.co.uk. Next season will see even more prizes like the one Tommy and Dave won. All winners are selected at random!
