Chas 'n' Dave classic makes comeback for charity
20 February 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
Who can forget Chas ‘n’ Dave’s 1987 Cup Final song, ‘Hot Shot Tottenham’?
Well, fans of the popular cockney duo will be delighted to hear that they have given a group of fellow fans the permission to use the original music for an up-to-date version ahead of the upcoming League Cup Final against Chelsea.
Under the band name ‘Ledley and The Kings’, in homage to our legendary former captain, Darryl Taylor and friends have recorded ‘Hot Shot Tottenham 2015’, with proceeds going to the Tottenham Tribute Trust.
The original reached No.18 in the UK charts back in May, 1987, but with lyrics such as ‘Kane you bet will hit the net’ and ‘Ledley all the goals are gonna be for you’, we are encouraging you to show your support for this project and get it into the charts ahead of cup final day.
The track is available to download on iTunes for just 59p and will feature in the Club’s #SpursAtWembley Spotify playlist which forms part of our official cup final toolkit. You can also watch a brilliant montage of our League Cup goals this season with Hot Shot Tottenham as the backing track on the club’s official YouTube channel.
The Tottenham Tribute Trust is an organisation dedicated to serving the needs of former Spurs stars who find themselves in a situation that compromises their quality of life. It is an organisation that reaches out to members of the Spurs family who are fighting hard times either financially, medically or both and is dedicated to making sure that no former Spurs player is forgotten.
At Tottenham Hotspur, we have been privileged to witness a glittering array of football legends and heroes, who have helped create a history and football tradition that we can be proud of. However, some of these players graced the field at a time when the financial rewards were poor and sacrifices were great. These individuals now need our help and others, maybe even heroes and legends of the more recent past, will need our help in the years to come.
Through fund-raising events and generous donations, the Tottenham Tribute Trust has already been able to help a variety of legends such as Les Allen, Eddie Baily, Ted Ditchburn, Tommy Harmer and Bobby Smith.
100 per cent of the net proceeds from each sale of this song will be donated to The Tottenham Tribute Trust (registered charity number 1094092).
