I Confess: My cousins' jumper

Posted on 4 September 2001  - 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).

Confession from Ralph Surry

Last game of the season when we got relegated against Leicester in '77.

Everyone's on the pitch at the end of the game demanding the team comes out so that we can show our loyal support. When they do, everyone's throwing scarves and hat's to them.

My cousin and I had no intention of giving up our gear but decide that his school jumper would do just as well.

So we throw it in the general direction of the team and it catches Hodd' square in the face. We melted into the crowd totally embarrassed.

We've often wondered what he used it for, cleaning his car probably and boy did we have some explaining to do about the jumper when we got home, my cousins’ parents were furious.
