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).

We were saddened to hear of the death of one of our greats, Les Medley, at the age of 80 last week.

Les was a key man in our famous 'push and run' side that won the First Division championship in 1950-51 having won the Second Division the season before, when Les was top scorer.

Born locally at Edmonton, Les joined us in 1939 and went on to guest for many team during the Second World War and a spell in Canada before returning to the Lane for that successful spell in 1948 He won six England caps in total.

The club pass on its condolences to his family at this sad time.
