East Fishkill Spurs - our latest club in the USA!
18 March 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
Stephen Fells told us about the passion of the Spurs community in America after East Fishkills Spurs became our latest official supporters club in the States.
East Fishkills is in Duchess County, approximately 75 miles north of New York City and chairman Stephen said his love of Spurs - he’s a Season Ticket Holder - combined with wanting kids at his local club to ‘be inspired about the game’ drove him to form the new club.
“I coach an Under-10 team who play in one of the biggest soccer leagues in the States and I want them to have a passion for the sport and for that to continue when they get older,” he explained on his latest visit to the Lane.
“If along the way if I can introduce them to Spurs, all the better!”
Our fantastic support in the USA is well-documented and Stephen added: “Spurs have more official supporters clubs in North America than any other club and that’s great to hear.
“There has been a connection with Spurs and America with the likes of Kasey Keller, Clint Dempsey and Brad Friedel all playing for the club and I’m now excited to see how Deandre Yedlin progress.
“America is such a massive country - I can get to London quicker than I can get to California! I know Stefan at San Francisco, Steve at New York, the fans know each other and when the club was last here in 2014, I travelled 8,000 miles to follow the games and kept bumping into people I know!
“It’s a massive country but there is a Spurs community there and the fans are as passionate as anyone.”
