Posted on 11 August 2003  - 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).

Jamie Redknapp describes being awarded the Tottenham captaincy as a 'tremendous honour'.

Glenn Hoddle revealed after the Sporting Lisbon encounter that Jamie would succeed Teddy Sheringham as skipper and the midfielder could not hide his delight.

"It is tremendous honour," beamed a proud Jamie. "I haven't been here a long time, only a year, but I know what a fantastic club it is.

"It was a very proud moment when the gaffer told me I was going to be captain - I was absolutely delighted."

The 30-year-old, who instantly relayed the news to his family when informed, naturally hopes that his reign as captain leads to the desired success.

"When he told me the first thing I had to do was tell my family because it means such a lot to me. Hopefully I can be a success at it because that is what we want, we all want to have success at Tottenham."
