From DC to WHL for the perfect day at Spurs
DC Spurs timed to perfection their first group visit to White Hart Lane - stepping straight into Spurs heaven!
Members of our Official Supporters Club based in Washington DC, USA, were there for Sunday's North London derby victory against Arsenal.
The Stateside fans touched down on Thursday and Friday before arriving early to take in the atmosphere in and around the N17.
They were at the Lane early enough to be taken down the tunnel and pitchside - and just so happened to time it as Andre Villas-Boas arrived for business!
As chairman Gareth Thomas pointed out, the visit couldn't have gone better.
"We had a wonderful day," he said. "As soon as we found out one of the benefits of becoming an Official Supporters Club was to be able to get tickets for this game, we jumped at the chance. In the end, 14 of us made the trip and for four or five of them, it was their first visit to the UK, let alone White Hart Lane!
"Some of our members had been Spurs fans for 15, 20 years but only ever seen the team on television back home in the States. I must admit, there were a few grown men with tears in their eyes!
"We were sat behind the goal in the Park Lane, the atmosphere was incredible and, of course, both goals were scored at that end. One of the guys said it was the greatest weekend of his life, so that is testament to the time we all had.
"Being able to take a walk down the tunnel, go pitchside and then the result made it an incredible day."
Initially formed in 2007, the Official Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Club of Washington DC, also known as DC Spurs, became official in 2011.
In recent years, DC Spurs have seen exceptional growth of committed fans and meet to watch all games at the Irish Channel Pub just blocks from the Chinatown Metro.
DC Spurs welcome all Spurs supporters who wish to join like-minded fans while living in or visiting the city.
