Young mascot Jasper May lived a childhood dream – thanks to Eamonn Byrne and our official matchday programme.
Eamonn is Company Manager for the West End production of War Horse, currently playing to a full house at the New London Theatre, Drury Lane. He’s also a Season Ticket Holder at Spurs.
The story starts in our final fixture of last season, Sunderland at White Hart Lane in the Premier League on May 19.Eamonn takes up the story...“At the end of last season I was sitting in the stand watching the game against Sunderland at White Hart Lane.“At half-time, I had a look through my programme and I turned to the section that shows all the mascots.“Looking through them all, I saw Jasper and the thing that struck me about his story was that unlike most of the mascots, the famous person he wanted to meet in the world wasn’t a footballer or a member of One Direction, but Michael Morpergo.“Michael Morpergo is the author of War Horse, so I thought to myself ‘I might just be able to make that happen’.“I invited Jasper and his family to the New London Theatre in Drury Lane to watch the show. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get Michael along, he just couldn’t get here with all his work commitments, but he sent us a signed copy of War Horse to present to Jasper.Jasper said: “It was fun to see the show and meet Joey, he looks really cool. I loved the show. It was a really special night.”WAR HORSE FACTS
