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).

Martin Jol described new defensive recruit Michael Dawson as a natural leader.


The 21-year-old checked in on Monday night from Nottingham Forest along with teammate Andy Reid and the Head Coach believes the club have added an old fashioned English-type defender to the ranks.


"I think Michael is a player - although he is very young - who is captaincy material and he was skipper at Forest. He is a leader, although he won't be skipper here because Ledley is our captain.


"He has a lot of potential, he is a personality and we can expect a lot from him in the future.


"He looks a terrific typical English defender with leadership qualities."
