THE BEAUTIFUL GAME

On Thursday night our local charity, Kith and Kids, hosted an exclusive preview of their latest art project, Canvassing Spurs.

For the past six months, Kith and Kids has been collecting works of art from Spurs fans, art students and famous artists which will be sold on our website next month.

Martin Jol, a self-confessed art lover, popped into the the exhibition in London's Brick Lane before returning to Spurs Lodge as the transfer window drew to a close.

He was mightily impressed with the standard of the work. "I really am amazed at the quality of these pieces," he said in-between signing autographs and talking to guests.

"It's nice to know that Spurs fans are so talented and that the Club means so much to them. I really quite fancy one or two of the pieces myself and wish Kith and Kids good luck with the auction - I expect some of the pieces will be hard-fought over."

Martin joined a panel of three judges who awarded prizes to the top three awards - eventually giving the top prize of £1000 and a signed Spurs shirt to James Burke for his amazing St.Pepper-style Spurs tribute.

Selected works will be on display around the stadium during our home games in September and the auction begins here on October 1.
