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 12th - 1983: Cecil Poynton passed away. He started a 12-year stint as a player in August 1922 and served on our backroom staff during the war. Later appointed assistant trainer, senior trainer and then physiotherapist until retiring in 1975.
