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).

Les Ferdinand&rsquo&#59;s hat-trick heroics went down well in the dressing room at the Lane.<P class=MsoNormal>The popular striker grabbed his first treble in three-and-a-half seasons at the club to help us secure a 3-0 victory against Leicester City.<P class=MsoNormal>Ferdinand hit the lows last season and considered quitting the game when his nightmare run of injuries took another turn for the worse. But he&rsquo&#59;s come out fighting, got himself fully fit again and is starting to strike fear into defences again.<P class=MsoNormal>Boss George Graham declared: &ldquo&#59;Les is in his best form at the club without doubt. He&rsquo&#59;s playing games for a start and he&rsquo&#59;s working hard. His attitude is first class and I&rsquo&#59;m delighted for him because he&rsquo&#59;s had a hard time here. He&rsquo&#59;s shown great character.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Midfielder Darren Anderton said: &ldquo&#59;Les deserved that. He&rsquo&#59;s worked hard without getting the goals and that&rsquo&#59;s just what he deserves. It was just what he needed.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;He has always been a great player but if he doesn&rsquo&#59;t score goals it doesn&rsquo&#59;t mean he&rsquo&#59;s not contributing to the team. You only have to look at the knocks he takes - he&rsquo&#59;s an outstanding team player.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Stephen Clemence added: &ldquo&#59;He scored one against Liverpool last week and now everything he touches goes in. He must be delighted and no-one deserves it more than him because he&rsquo&#59;s worked so hard for us up front without much reward in recent games.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
