Last chance to bid for special-edition poppy shirts
17 November 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
You now have under 24 hours to bid for Poppy-adorned items of first team kit from the North London derby at Arsenal – personally signed by the players – as part of our auction to raise further funds for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
The players wore special edition Poppy shirts during our 1-1 draw at the Emirates, while goalscorer Harry Kane, Jan Vertonghen and Hugo Lloris ran out in Poppy-emblazoned boots. Hugo also sported Poppy goalkeeper gloves and a special captain’s armband with a Poppy logo.
All these items are now available to bid on and are part of a total of 51 pieces of worn and unworn apparel up for auction. Each item has been personally signed by the player who it belonged to on the day.
The first item finishes at 11.31am tomorrow morning (Wednesday, November 18) with the last up at 3.39pm.
All proceeds will be donated to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

So far this year, the Club has raised over £6,000 for the Poppy Appeal from the sale of its limited edition Poppy Pin Badges alone, with Poppy sellers from the Royal British Legion present at both of our home fixtures against Aston Villa and Anderlecht last week.
A Poppy Wall was also re-erected at White Hart Lane following a great response when first introduced 12 months ago and has been available for supporters to pin a Poppy to and pay their respects to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
