Hudd signs up for Ledley XI
06 May 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
Tom Huddlestone is the latest former favourite we can reveal will take part in Ledley King's Testimonial as part of his Guest XI side on Monday May 12.
The elegant midfielder joined us from Derby in 2006, making 209 First Team appearances in our colours, before departing for Hull City last summer.
Speaking about his former skipper, Tom was quick to state his appreciation for someone he admires as a player, leader and person.
"Obviously, player-wise, Ledley is one who deserves an honour like this more than most," said the scorer of 15 - mostly spectacular - goals during his time at the Lane. "On a personal note, Ledley was a big help to me when I joined as a young player and was someone I looked up to.
"He didn't train as much as he would have liked but even just around the place he led by example. He was a great captain, not the most vocal, but he led the way often by being the best player on the pitch."
While Tom is looking forward to treading the White Hart Lane turf again and pulling on the shirt, he insists the night is all about one man.
"The occasion is the most important thing, Ledley had a fine career and it is a privilege to be asked to come back and play in this game. It will be a bit strange being back in a Spurs shirt on the pitch at White Hart Lane, but it will be great and to be there honouring Ledley is the main thing."
Keep an eye on our club channels for further updates on which other former players will be part of Ledley's big night.
