A Tottenham X1 travel to Kingstonian on Wednesday to take part in a benefit match for former player David Leworthy. The striker scored four goals in 12 appearances for Spurs during his spell at the club in 1985.

The game kicks off at the Kingsmeadow Stadium at 7.45pm with admission priced at L8 in the main stand, L6 on the terraces, with children and OAPs being admitted for L4.

Leicester City and England's Steve Guppy will be making a guest appearance on the night, as will former Coventry and Republic of Ireland international Liam Daish.

He has played league football for Portsmouth, Spurs, Oxford United and Reading. He is a superbly talented forward who is a prolific goalscorer. Honours include four non-league England caps and has represented the FA XI five times. Leworthy gained a League Cup winners medal with Oxford United.

Signed by Kingstonian from Rushden & Diamonds at the beginning of season 97-98, he promptly scored 30 goals in 45 appearances. Overall for Kingstonian, Leworthy netted 66 goals in 132 appearances. Part of the successful Kingstonian team managed by Geoff Chapple that won the FA Trophy in consecutive seasons 1998-1999 and 1999-2000.
