Legends win in front of former boss

Posted on 2 August 2010  - 12:00

The Spurs Legends defence remained watertight as the former White Hart Lane stars kept their first clean sheet for some time in a match against a representative side from the Development of Pancreatic Cancer (DPCR) charity.

The Spurs Legends defence remained watertight as the former White Hart Lane stars kept their first clean sheet for some time in a match against a representative side from the Development of Pancreatic Cancer (DPCR) charity.

With the likes of Stuart Nethercott and substitute Terry Gibson in fine form at the back, the opposition were unable to find a breakthrough as Spurs ran out comfortable victors in a game watched over by the likes of Keith Burkinshaw (pictured), Peter Shreeve and John Pratt at Ware in Hertfordshire.

Spurs went close after only four minutes through a Garry Brooke special - his long-range efforts have become something of a trademark in the Legends side - but on this occasion his 30-yard effort sailed over the bar.

David Howells put Spurs into the lead from the penalty spot after 22 minutes, having himself been impeded in the box as he tried to compete for an Andy Edmonds right wing cross.

Nine minutes into the second half, Mark Falco saw his rising shot tipped over the bar before two goals in quick succession from Micky Jarrett around the 65-minute mark put Spurs into a 3-0 lead.

By the time Trevor Wilkinson fired home the team's fourth goal in the 78th minute, the result was already beyond doubt.

Spurs Legends: Richard Barlow, Andy Edmonds, Stuart Nethercott, Mark Falco, Tony Galvin, Garry Brooke, Trevor Wilkinson, David Kerslake, David Howells, Steve Grenfell, Micky Jarrett. Subs: Terry Gibson, Tim O'Shea, Bobby Scarth.
