The Spurs Legends side, consisting of a number of well-known faces from down the years at White Hart Lane, returns to action this Sunday (March 27) to honour the memory of a keen supporter.

The friends and family of the late Dan Newman will take to the field against the likes of Garry Brooke, Stuart Nethercott, Tony Galvin and Mark Falco in a match to raise funds for the charity Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY).

The match takes place at Ware FC in Hertfordshire, kick-off 2.00pm, with tickets available on the turnstiles at £7 per adult with under 12s admitted free.

The Legends warmed up for the game with a comprehensive 11-1 defeat of North London-based side Greenhearts FC at Ware on Sunday afternoon.

Among those who impressed were Paul Allen and Clive Wilson, both of whom turned on the style in a match watched over by special guest coach Terry Naylor.

Having arrived at the ground just 10 minutes before kick-off, Garry Brooke evidently forgot his scoring boots in his haste to get to the ground as he missed two golden chances to put Spurs into an early lead!

Falco then hit the bar with a deft chip, but he made no mistake when he volleyed home in the 25th minute following a cross from David Kerslake.

Having ventured outfield, goalkeeper-turned-striker Ian Walker crossed for Falco to double his tally soon afterwards, before himself netting arguably the goal of the game when he took one slight touch to control a cross before firing in on the half-volley.

Wheeling away in celebration, Walker will have hoped he set an example to his new players having last week taken his first step into management by taking over as boss of Conference South side Bishop’s Stortford.

Ten minutes after the break, Clive Wilson’s cross was headed home by substitute James Bunn to make it 4-0, before Greenhearts keeper Chris Cawthorne made a blinding reaction save to deny Bunn a second goal.

A goal from Trevor Wilkinson was followed up by two in quick succession from Micky Jarrett as Greenhearts crumbled, with Bunn’s eventual second of the game taking the tally to 8-0 at the 75th minute mark.

Greenhearts then pulled a goal back, before 11-year-old guest player Zak Johnson put the ball away following a cross from Bunn to make it 9-1.

Wilson got himself on the scoresheet from close range, before Jarrett completed his hat-trick with a well-taken right-footed effort in the dying moments.

Spurs Legends: Ian Walker, David Kerslake, Tony Galvin, Stuart Nethercott, John Lacy, Garry Brooke, Paul Allen, Clive Wilson, Mark Stimson, Mark Falco, Andy Edmunds. Subs used: James Bunn, Trevor Wilkinson, Micky Jarrett, Tony Tillbrook (GK).
