Some years ago, Spurs came over to Northern Ireland to play Glenavon in a pre-season friendly. As treasurer of a local supporters' club I was in the party which presented our player of the year trophy and met the players after the game.
As we left with a few of the players, a group of young kids was waiting for autographs. As part of the larger group I happily signed away, pretending I was a player. I imagine that there are teenagers now who look at their books and wonder 'Whatever happened to him?'
