I Confess: Ejection

Posted on 8 August 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).

Although never a hooligan, I did get chucked out of the Lane back in the early eighties. It was before an FA Cup game with Exeter and I was standing on the Shelf when a surge sent fans sprawling.

As I was one of few left standing a copper grabbed me by the ear and proceeded to eject me
from the ground. I soon had a bright idea! This was to climb the block of flats overlooking the main stand (which has been demolished) and watch the game from there.

Unfortunately I had to climb a gate to gain access. However during this escapade I ripped my trousers from rear waistband to fly, leaving my a**e hanging out for all to see. After scaling the gate I still did not get to see the game from the flats as they had a security

Luckily I did manage to get back into the Lane just a few minutes into the game after buying a ticket from a bunch of lads outside the ground.

Spurs then went on to win the match and the cup.
