Our new feature takes a look back at Spurs careers through the photographer's lens. Next up, Gary Mabbutt - 16 years a Spur, 11 as captain...
'Mabbsy' joined us from Bristol Rovers in 1982 on the recommendation of legendary former manager Bill Nicholson.
Like Bill, he would be granted legendary status at the Club.
Initially a midfielder before making the central defensive role his own, Gary made his debut for us in the Charity Shield, scored on his league debut and then won his first full England cap all within three months of joining us.
He went on to win the UEFA Cup in 1984 and lift the FA Cup as captain in 1991 before calling time on his career in 1998 after 611 appearances, placing him only behind Steve Perryman in our all-time appearances list - all while managing the effects of diabetes!
Now a Club Ambassador, this is Mabbsy's Spurs life in pictures...
