Happy returns

Posted on 10 October 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).

Chris Waddle says he's looking forward to 'crossing the white line' again at the Lane in next week's Tottenham Tribute Match.

The wing wizard will join fellow Lane legends Jurgen Klinsmann, Glenn Hoddle and Paul Gascoigne in the match to raise funds for former players against DC United on Thursday October 17.

Chris hasn't played at the Lane since December 1994 when he appeared as a substitute for Sheffield Wednesday.

And he recalls that a certain Jurgen Klinsmann had a lot to say about that afternoon.

"I'm looking forward to coming back," he said. "I've been back in the commentary box before and watched games but I think I only came back to play once and that was with Sheffield Wednesday.

"It will be the first time I've run out onto the pitch since that game, in 1994-95. I remember it because I played against Jurgen Klinsmann that day, I think he scored.

"I went on at half-time and got a great reception from the fans. Willie Morgan was doing the announcing and it was a fantastic reception.

"Tottenham fans always appreciate skill but also recognise a player working hard and giving his best. They always have respect for that. Even the little things like clapping them when you walk off, even if you've lost 4-0, they appreciate that.

"They always loved entertainment and I'd like to think I was able to give them that.

"I'm looking forward to going back. As I said, I've been back before but this will mean a little more because I'm crossing the white line."

Meanwhile, Vice President of the Club and member of the Tottenham Tribute Trust, Chris Smith commented "I think it is wonderful that past players have given up their time to come back and play for us, raising money for such a worthy cause.

"The Trust and the Club is extremely grateful for their commitment. I am absolutely delighted with the response from these players in the last few days."
