My claim to fame: David Ginola

Posted on 23 May 2001  - 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).

From Dominic, Bexleyheath: At about Christmas 1999, I saw David Ginola jump out of his car in Buckhurst Hill and run in to a petrol station.

I started running after him, only just avoiding being hit by several cars, and ran in to the petrol station shop.

I asked him for his autograph, but then I realised that I did not have any paper except for a tissue. He signed the tissue, and I was well pleased.

As I walked back down the high road, I blew my nose on the same tissue, ruining the autograph!

Luckily enough I saw him again outside the training ground a few months later, and this time I made him sign my autograph book!
