San Francisco Spurs at the Lane!
20 January 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
San Francisco Spurs joined us at White Hart Lane for Saturday's 2-1 win against Sunderland.
Members of one of our most-established Supporters Clubs in the USA - currently standing at a fantastic 35 - took a tour of the Lane before enjoying our 2-1 win against the Black Cats.
Chairman, Steffan Chirazi, was delighted to join us pitchside and told us about a typical matchday for a 3pm UK kick-off back at the Danny Coyles pub, home of SF Spurs in the Sunshine State of California.
"It starts with an alarm call at 6.05am, then 6.15am, then 6.20am!" said Steffan. "I jump in the car down to Danny Coyles, the bar we're fortunate enough to call home.
"We've one member called Harvey who was here when the team won the double in 1961, there's me as the bridge between that era and the new breed of Spurs fans. We all get together, it's a cheerful group and a very friendly environment as well.
"Of course, it's all over by 9.30am - which gives us the chance to celebrate a victory all day!
"Spurs have the history, the exciting flair players and it all matches with what Americans like the most, the thrill of it and the passion we have for our club, they know it's real."
