Tony's central station

Posted on 2 May 2002  - 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).

Anthony Gardner is relishing the added responsibility of playing in the centre of a defensive three.

Recent injuries to both Dean Richards and Ledley King have seen Tony drafted into the centre, flanked by the smaller Chris Perry and Ben Thatcher.

It is a bit of a departure for the big man, who is accustomed to playing on the left, but he says it is a different game that can only improve him.

"It's different for me because I'm used to playing on the left," said Anthony. "I don't mind playing in the middle, it's a different sort of game you have to play.

"You've got more responsibility, but I like that responsibility on my shoulders and it'll make me a better player."

Tony certainly put in a big performance in that position against Liverpool and he dedicates it to the fans and staff.

"I enjoyed it massively. We wanted to put on a big final day for ourselves and the fans, particularly the fans, and for the staff."
