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 31 - 1954: VJ Woodward, our famous amateur centre forward, passed away. He was the first Spur to gain a Full England cap when he faced Ireland in February, 1903, scoring two goals.
