Spurs fan Royce rolls into Lane

Posted on 25 November 2000  - 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 Simon Royce rolls into White Hart Lane with Leicester City on Saturday &mdash&#59; with the intention of heaping misery on his favourite team.<P class=MsoNormal>Goalkeeper Royce takes over between the sticks with in-form regular number one Tim Flowers sidelined with a shoulder injury for a month.<P class=MsoNormal>Royce revealed: &ldquo&#59;Being a Spurs fan does add spice for me. But rest assured, I am a professional and I will be a Leicester fan on Saturday. <P class=MsoNormal>"I&rsquo&#59;ve had a few requests from fans for tickets. I&rsquo&#59;m looking forward to it.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Ex-Spur Peter Taylor, now the very successful Leicester boss, said: &ldquo&#59;I&rsquo&#59;m sorry for Tim Flowers, because he has been really excellent for us and we&rsquo&#59;ve lost him for about a month. I am looking to bring someone else in on loan as cover, but I&rsquo&#59;m also pleased that Simon has been good for us to.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Taylor returns to the Lane knowing that a win would take them into second place in the Premiership. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;It&rsquo&#59;s a great stadium, and Tottenham are a great club,&rdquo&#59; Taylor added. &ldquo&#59;I&rsquo&#59;m looking forward to the game. I&rsquo&#59;m pleased we are playing first because it gives them (the players) a big incentive, to get into second place. <P class=MsoNormal>"It&rsquo&#59;s a similar situation to last weekend, when we knew that we could move third with Liverpool playing on Sunday. This weekend, we&rsquo&#59;ve got Arsenal playing Leeds and Liverpool don&rsquo&#59;t play until Sunday either.&rdquo&#59; <P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
