Scott's a record breaker!

Posted on 19 January 2004  - 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).

Spurs fan Scott Offord won our Shoot for a Holiday competition at half time at our game against Liverpool in a record time of 7.6 seconds!

To say 27-year-old Scott enjoyed the occasion would be an understatement: "It was absolutely excellent and the whole thing went brilliantly. It was like a dream, but to be honest I wasn't really aware of the 36,000 fans watching, once I had the ball at my feet and was playing for a holiday, I just focused all the attention on the football."

It was a tale of two strikes for Scott, who is from Harlow, as his the first effort was a record breaker and his second almost hit the corner flag!

"I hit the first shot ok but I tried to give the second one a bit too much and it went really wide and was an absolute stinker. I'm absolutely chuffed to get the record. I didn't know what the record was before hand and I just went out there to try and go as fast as possible."

Far away shores are now the focus of attention for Scott as he starts to think about where to go on his Thomson holiday.

"I'm really chuffed to bits to win the holiday and it also keeps my missus happy! I like the sound of Cancun in Mexico or I might look at the Caribbean. Somewhere exotic though!"

If you fancy a once in a lifetime opportunity to play on the hallowed turf at White Hart Lane in front of 36,000 fans, with the chance to actually score a goal and at the same time pick up a Thomson holiday worth £1,000, then register for Shoot for a Holiday and you could be the one battling it out with a Portsmouth fan at our home game against Portsmouth on Saturday February 7.

The lucky person, who will be selected at random from all the entrants, will also get two tickets to the match and a full kit to keep!
