I Confess: Fame for a day
Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).
Some years ago, Spurs came over to Northern Ireland to play Glenavon in a pre-season friendly. As treasurer of a local supporters' club I was in the party which presented our player of the year trophy and met the players after the game.
As we left with a few of the players, a group of young kids was waiting for autographs. As part of the larger group I happily signed away, pretending I was a player. I imagine that there are teenagers now who look at their books and wonder 'Whatever happened to him?'
