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).

Ryan, aka Rjh20, has just won the Managers Table on SundayLeague, the biggest and best online football management game in the world.

He's a dedicated Spurs fan, so imagine his delight onbeing rewarded for his efforts with the Spurs top of his choice!

Ryan is 16 and lives in Weymouth in Dorset where he is studying at college. When he's not busyswotting or managing his SundayLeague team, Harmans Hotspurs, he has a hectic schedule of hobbies and taking part in sports.

Not only does he list Table-Tennis, Tennis, Karting, Snooker, Photography, Pool, Darts, Swimming, Short Mat Bowls and Fishing as hobbies, he also plays in a skittles team called the 69ers and a 5-a-side football team called Southill Seadogs along with his cousin, also well known on the game as Andy_101uk.

Ryan's already very clear about what he wants to do in the future, he's hoping to become a sports photographer and travel the world in his job. No doubt he's anxious
to cover as many Spurs games as possible too!

When talking of his passion for Spurs you can see that he's been taking his football very seriously from a young age. "I have supported Spurs since I was about five, and will never stop supporting them, I'm an absolute fanatic! Of course I am a very big fan of our country too. When I was still a Junior member of the Spurs Supporters club, I used to enter the competitions and was very lucky on two occasions. First of which I went to the photocall and appeared in the team photo in the year we won the Worthington Cup, I was lucky enough to get my hands on the cup too. The second time round was a trip to the training ground."

This ranks highly in his favourite moments as a Spurs fan, along with the FA Cup success in 1991 of course.

Ryan has been playing SundayLeague now for seven seasons, so he's a bit of a veteran of the game.

He's had lots of success too, although none greater than this latest triumph. "Of course my best achievement is winning the Managers Table, because it is just such a great feeling, and I am glad to have won two League titles and to have come runner-up in league history twice. I haven't won anything else apart from those mentioned, but I have still done well in competions. Very pleased about reaching top-flight football for the next season too. In the knockout cups, I have been in 3 Beer Cup finals, all of which being runner up, and have been runner up in the Super Cup and reaching the Quarter-Final of the World Cup."

Ryan has also built up a healthy rivalry with some of the other managers on the game. "On SpursSL, I also mangage jonny_maguire - Norfolk Enchants. It is a joint team between myself, and my cousin Andy_101uk. We have had great success in the few seasons we have been in charge of the club! Myself and andy_101uk have a big rivalry, living near to one another is one thing, being related is another and managing our own seperate teams produces a great rivalry between the two of us when we come head to head. Two of my other greatest rivals has to be trickydicky aka SpursManglers and dreamer_uk7 aka psychos, reason being, we have all been in the same league for the last 3 or 4 seasons or so, we just can't seem to get away from each other. Suprisingly the 3 ofus will be playing once again in the new coming season as they both grabbed promotion again behind my 1st place spot!"

A new season is about to begin and Ryan will have his work cut out to keep hold of his title as the competition becomes fierce.

Why not be one of the many managers from all around the world competing for SundayLeague glory? It's not fantasy football, it's a fantastic football game!
