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).

Dear Spurs Brothers

Well, I am from South Africa. I now reside in London but only moved here 6 years ago. I remember it well, as if it was yesterday, the 1981 FA Cup. I played for my local Football club, Green Point.

Half our club was made up of Ex-Pats and I asked my hero at the time who he was supporting as we all gathered round the telly to watch the game. He said he grew up going to White Hart Lane. I`ll never forget that afternoon.

My first experience of the Lane I was like a kid with a new toy. I can`t remember ever being so excited, and I was 28. We were playing Leicester, 1-1 it finished, Colin Calderwood off his knee equalised late from a yard out.

Now I go as often as possible home and away and met loads of top Spurs fans on my travels.

Come on you Spurs
