Knight Bill Nick

Posted on 31 March 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).

You can now go directly from the Official Spurs Website to one of the most worthy Spurs causes online - Knight Bill Nick.

The website is dedicated to the greatest Spurs legend of them all - Bill Nicholson - and, as the name suggests, the campaign to get the great man knighted.

Bill, now 84, is one of the managerial greats. He won the lot at the Lane including the first domestic league and FA Cup double of the 20th century and in 1963, his side were the first in Britian to lift a European trophy in the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup.

The Knight Bill Nick campaign has been running since January 2001 and over 3,000 names are on the petition.

Spokesman Harry Hotspur commented: "We've had a lot of support from fans and the club and fans can sign the petition online. It's a worthy cause - Bill Nicholson is the Spurs legend."

The website isn't just about the campaign though, there is latest news, a biography, tributes, photos and messages of support from fellow club legends, including current boss Glenn Hoddle and Jimmy Greaves.
