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).

Simon Davies has thanked the fans for their magnificent support in Sunday's FA Cup draw at Manchester City.

Over 4,000 fans made the trip to the City of Manchester Stadium for a 1pm kick-off on Sunday with the game also screened live on BBC.

Their support remained undiminished despite a disappointing first half and got its reward in the second half, when we fought back to earn a replay via Gary Doherty's header.

"I'd like to thank the fans - they were brilliant on Sunday," said Simon in his weekly 'Digger's Diary' for this website.

"It's so good to have the fans right behind you and even when City scored and we weren't playing that well, they continued to support us.

"We came out for the second half, took a look over there and knew we couldn't let them down. They were fantastic."
