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 take a look at a key event from the club's history on this day...

January 7 - 1939: Following many years of rallying by the Club board, our senior players wore numbered shirts for the first time, in a 7-1 FA Cup victory over Watford.

With thanks to club historian Andy Porter
