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).

Andy Griffin of Portsmouth became only the second opposing player to net our first goal of a League season on Saturday.

The only previous instance, since we joined the Football League back in 1908, was on the opening day of the 1953-54 campaign, Wednesday, August 19, when Harry Parkes of Aston Villa headed past his own 'keeper after 38 minutes to give us a 1-0 home win.
