King of the Lane
04 April 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
We are delighted to announce that The Ledley King Testimonial Committee will be staging a match at White Hart Lane to celebrate Ledley's career on Monday May 12, kick-off 8pm.
Our Legendary former captain will lead a Ledley Guest XI from his playing days against the current First Team on what is sure to be a special night of nostalgia and excitement at the Lane.
Good causes chosen by Ledley will also benefit and will be announced shortly.
The former England international made 323 appearances for the Club during a career which saw him lead the team to League Cup glory at Wembley in 2008 and help secure Champions League qualification for the first time in our history in 2009-10 before calling time on his playing career in the summer of 2012.
He has since spent the past two years as a Club Ambassador and has worked closely with the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation to support a number of projects aimed at creating life changing opportunities for people in the local community, as well as engaging regularly with the Club's fanbase both on matchdays and through specific supporter events at home and abroad.
Ledley, a rare breed in modern-day football in being a one-club man, is relishing the prospect of stepping out onto the pitch at the Lane one last time for this showcase fixture.
"I am delighted to be given this game by the Club," said Ledley. "It will be an extremely emotional evening for me, especially to play again at White Hart Lane in front of our amazing fans and I will savour every moment. This Club is so special to me and I hope that the fans can share in what will be a great night."
Chairman Daniel Levy added: "Ledley is one of the greatest players to wear the colours of this Club and we look forward to recognising his great service and loyalty with this game. It will be a memorable evening for everyone."
