MBE for Dickie

Posted on 31 December 2004  - 12:00

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).

Long-serving Academy coach Dickie Moss - now 80 - has been awarded the MBE in the New Year's honours list.

Dickie, who still coaches goalkeepers at local outfit Brimsdown Rovers and runs coaching courses for Enfield Rangers in the summer, receives his honour for 'services to young people in North London'.

He joined what is now our Academy staff back in 1981 and now has scouting, coaching, education and physio duties.

Dickie, who took his UEFA B coaching licence aged 78, taught in Haringey and North London for 45 years and was Headmaster of Somerset Lower School when he retired. He also played for Hertford Town and Sunday football until he was 50!
