Once Upon: Jonathan Dayman

Posted on 31 July 2002  - 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).

My first match was in 1979, I went with a friend from Eastbourne. He was a Spurs fan and I was Derby fan, (I know).

But once I saw Glenn Hoddle play I was hooked. I'd never seen a player with so much skill before. By half-time I was a Spurs fan and never looked back.

I went to every home game for the next four years.

I then started work full-time which included Saturdays and couldn`t get up there much after that with me playing football myself, a few midweek games over the years.

I've been living in Canada for the past 10 years, so it's been a long time since I was at the Lane.

I keep up to date by the internet.
