Monstrous fun down at the Lane!

Fans enjoyed a frightfully-good night of Halloween-themed activities at our epic Capital One Cup night against Hull City.

Who was the Spurs legend in the Halloween costume?It was Graham Roberts!Chirpy was in goal for a penalty shoot-outEA Sports had a presence outside the groundThere were some fantastic costumes on show!

We’d asked you to get into the spirit of Halloween, and young supporters and their families turned up in their thousands in an impressive array of fancy dress.

Our SPURS FAMILY SPOOKTACULAR kicked off from 5.30pm on Tottenham Square, to create a special night of Football Tricks and surprising Treats.

Disney XD Channel’s Francis Vu starred in our freestyle Astroturf, showing off his skills and putting kids through their paces.

Kids were treated to toffee apples and popcorn, and enjoying getting their faces painted – Spurs cockerel badges and spooky themes were the order of the night.

Young players honed their skills under the watchful eye of our soccer schools’ coaches, and grooved along to the haunting melodies of our Halloween-themed sounds.

Chirpy was on hand to meet his fans and pose for photos, resplendent in a black cape and a string of Halloween pumpkin lights.

Six lucky Junior footballers were selected from the Square, to take penalties against Chirpy at half-time in front of the North Stand.

It was a real treat for the young fans and crashing the ball into the back of the net was an experience they’ll never forget.

At half-time, we revealed our Spurs legend in a fright-mask and cape – it was none other than Graham Roberts!

All in all, it was a truly ‘fangtastic’ night.
