HISTORY OF THE CLUB
INDUCTED INTO THE HALL OF FAME
Skilful wide midfielder with a wand of a right foot, Darren Anderton played 358 times for us in 12 years at the Lane between 1992-2004.
Darren came to prominance at Portsmouth, not least when he opened the scoring for Pompey in the FA Cup semi-final against Liverpool in 1992.
He linked-up with the likes of Nick Barmby and Teddy Sheringham to play some fantastic football in the 1992-93 campaign, but the team lost in the semi-finals of the FA Cup to Arsenal.
He won the first of 30 England caps in 1994 and the arrival of Jurgen Klinsmann that summer had fans dreaming of success again, only for another FA Cup run to end at the semi-finals.
Injuries unfortunately played a huge part in Darren's career at Spurs but recovered from injury in 1995-96 to feature in Euro 96 and then again in England's World Cup campaign in 1998, where he scored in the group stages against Colombia. He won the last of his caps in November, 2001.
Back at Spurs, Darren at last made it to Wembley and helped us lift the League Cup against Leicester City in 1999. He also scored a stunning goal against Leeds United in the FA Cup that year.
Darren eventually left the club for Birmingham City in 2004 and went on to play for the Blues and Wolves before a successful late-career stint at Bournemouth, where he scored 12 goals in 72 appearances between 2006-2008.
He announced his retirement in December, 2008 and went out in style with a volleyed winner for Bournemouth against Chester, aged 36.
