Response to Mirror story

Posted on 21 March 2001  - 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).

Response to today’s Mirror story headed ‘Graham in Cash Riddle'

The Club would confirm there is no ‘cash riddle’ at White Hart Lane.

The cash in question is as a result of fining players in cash for misdemeanours, this has been a practice at the Club for a number of years. At the end of each season all monies are donated to charity.

The cash was not suddenly found in a drawer, as the Mirror claims. It was kept in a strong box in the Club Secretary’s office and obviously its purpose, existence and whereabouts were known.

We were not asked to comment in advance, nor is the Club aware of the source of this information. We are actively conducting our own investigation on that point.
