A Day to Remember

Fri, January 21, 2005 - 15:35, Events, Administrator,

When future conversations recall great days at White Hart Lane, Saturday, January 8th 2005 will forever spring to mind. In reality, it wasn’t much of a spectacle on the pitch thanks to Brighton’s dogged determination to cause an F.A. Cup upset, but in box 102 of the East Stand a most memorable and groundbreaking day was enjoyed by all.

- And before I hear shouts of ‘’Prawn sandwich’’, please allow me to let you in on a wonderful, memory provoking gathering of Spurs past history.

Since inauguration of the Tottenham Tribute Trust, Club Chairman Daniel Levy has eagerly participated in the uniting of the Spurs family.

In day’s synonymous with fan criticism of both Director’s, and their Chairmen, how refreshing is it to know that our present incumbent openly courts the return of the club’s favourite sons, and more importantly, works together with us fans to make it happen?

Criticism has largely been warranted in previous regimes, but Daniel’s kind donation of our largest East Stand box was not only highly generous but appreciated by all who attended. Thank you Daniel, your kindness was overwhelming.

The Tottenham Tribute Trust has been highly successful since its inauguration in October of 2002, with its main intent on tracking down old faces from the club’s past in order to help their lives in any way possible.

This can be done by way of any necessary financial aid, payments for impending hospitalization, or care for injuries and operations.

For the Brighton game, the Tribute Trust extended invitations to a number of ex-players, and not all direct recipients of Trust funds. Unfortunately, bad weather took its toll on the morning of the game, with Maurice Norman’s defection due to dangerous driving conditions. Further losses were incurred in the shape of Graham Roberts to pressing business commitments abroad, Dennis Bond to his mother’s illness and subsequent hospitalization, and Jean Harmer to personal ill health. In attendance were the following Spurs’ and their welcome guests;

Eddie Baily – member of the famous ‘push and run’ team, England International, and Assistant Manager to the late, great Bill Nicholson.
Bobby Smith – Centre Forward in our unique ‘Double’ winning team; fearless, and fearsome England international.
John Ryden – A brave, tough-tackling, non-compromising Scot, who played 68 games for Spurs, some as club captain.
Tommy Harmer – A man who was the epitome of the club’s attitude to flair football. Known endearingly through the game as ‘’Harmer the Charmer.’’
Eddie Clayton – A loyal, amiable stalwart of the Nicholson era who proudly played a century of games in the famous white shirt.
Terry Dyson – Diminutive yet workaholic winger in the club’s proud ‘Double’ side, and scorer of two of our five that won the European Cup Winner's Cup 1963.

My sincere thanks go to Martin Chivers, Martin Peters, Mel Hopkins, John Pratt, Pat Jennings, Phil Beal [on his birthday], Paul Allen, and Morris Keston, who all visited our guests. With special mention to Cliff Jones and Ralph Coates, who spent extensive periods of the day entertaining us all. Thank you gentlemen, your contribution was very much appreciated, as were visits from existing Trustee’s, Chris Smith [Chairman], Selwyn Tash, Daniel Wynne [Spurs own Motsonesque THTV commentator] and club historian, Andy Porter. Further compliments go to Andy, who supplied welcome pictures of attendees past games, Adrian, who managed the excellent catering on the day, and to my partner Jo, who worked tirelessly to co-host the event.

This most memorable of occasions was most definitely on par with some of the greatest moments in my life as a supporter; a great day being enjoyed by many who hadn’t been back in a number of years - a trend that I believe will now be reversed.

We saw an excellent result, a number of old friendships rekindled [as well as a number of new ones made], a few tears, and six hours of excellent fun, camaraderie and great humour.

It left the Trustees who attended equally proud and humble to be Tottenham Hotspur fans, especially hearing what this day genuinely meant to the heroes of our past.

Tribute Match Tottenham V’s D C United

White Hart Lane was treated to a display by some of its finest sons in a thoroughly enjoyable evening, which saw the proceeds going to the newly formed Tottenham Tribute Trust, which will help former players of this great club.

American side DC United provided the opposition but the paying public came to see the likes of Jurgen Klinsmann, Paul Gascoigne, Chris Waddle, Clive Allen and Paul Allen grace the hallowed turf one more time.

The Spurs team for the first half lined up as follows:

Kasey Keller, Dean Marney, Gary Doherty, Goran Bunjevcevic, Chris Perry, Gus Poyet, Steffen Freund, Paul Gascoigne, David Ginola, Jurgen Klinsmann and Teddy Sheringham

Current skipper Teddy Sheringham was desperate to play alongside his good friend and former striking partner Jurgen Klinsmann. The memories came flooding back for the excited crowd as Teddy and Jurgen lined up against the four times American champions and Ginola was simply magnifique on the flank.

A trim Gazza wowed the crowd and he seemed so at home at the club which benefited from the best form of his career which saw him leave the club in 1992 with thirty three goals in one hundred and twelve appearances.

The highlights of the first half included a fine run by David Ginola which saw the ball break to Teddy Sheringham whose shot hit the post.

Dean Marney showed us all that as well as having a rich history the future is bright as he was in tremendous form on his White Hart Lane debut.

The half time whistle sounded to bring down the curtain on the goalless first half but the entertainment didn’t stop.

A parade of legends took place during the break and the crowd gave a very warm White Hart Lane welcome to Bobby Smith, Cliff Jones, Tommy Harmer, Len Duquemin and others. There was not a dry eye in the stadium as the daddy of them all, Bill Nicholson came on to the pitch. Bill was clearly enjoying being amongst his old friends, and we were glad to see him out there!

The second half started with the Spurs side lining up as follows:

Lars Hirschfeld, Steve Carr, Dean Marney, Colin Calderwood, Ronnie Henry, Paul Gascoigne, Steve Clemence, David Ginola, Chris Waddle, Teddy Sheringham and Jurgen Klinsmann.

Lars Hirschfeld who replaced Kasey Keller, caught the eye in the opening exchanges and Chris Waddle raised a smile or two with his efforts on the wing. I guess it is fair to say Chris now prefers the ball being “played to feet” rather than into space!!

Five minutes into the second half, Gazza was replaced by Jonathan Blondel. The crowd rose to its feet to salute the scorer of one of the finest free kicks Wembley Stadium has ever seen. Gazza responded by kissing the badge and he was clearly touched by the warm reception he received.

Fifteen minutes later, the man they all came to see was given a standing ovation as he walked off the pitch. Jurgen Klinsmann, who had made sixty eight appearances scoring thirty eight goals in his two spells at the club replaced by Clive Allen. Jurgen has kept himself in fine shape since he retired from football and he too seemed to relish being in the limelight at White Hart Lane one more time.

Clive Allen didn’t manage to reproduce his goal scoring exploits from the 1986-87 season under David Pleat, but he did enjoy his evening and was joined with fifteen minutes to go by his cousin Paul. The Allen family have a great tradition at Tottenham and it was only right that they were represented tonight. Clive had scored eighty four goals in one hundred and thirty five appearances, his dad Les Allen, part of the double winning team made one hundred and thirty seven appearances scoring sixty one goals and Paul Allen scored twenty eight goals in three hundred and seventy appearances.

With five minutes remaining, as the crowd were enjoying a Mexican wave (including the West Stand and the Director’s Box!) Wade Barrett scored the only goal of the game as it ended Spurs 0 DC United 1.

The night was a tremendous success, enjoyed by everyone who attended. What a marvellous gesture by the former heroes to give up their time to help the Tottenham Tribute Trust, who in turn will help the former players and staff of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club who now find themselves in financial distress.

The family of Tottenham really did unite tonight. Congratulations to everyone involved.


An evening with Jürgen Klinsmann!

An evening with Jürgen Klinsmann!

Selwyn really did find himself in the middle of three Tottenham greats on the eve of the Tribute Match!

On Wednesday 16th October 2002 over 250 people including Club directors and their guests attended a black tie reception and dinner at “Whites “ adjacent to White Hart Lane Stadium to raise money for the Spurs football academy. The guest of honour was Jürgen Klinsmann and the event was also attended by Glenn Hoddle and his management team of John Gorman, Chris Hughton and Colin Calderwood., current players Teddy Sheringham and Steffen Freund, and former captains and favourites Gary Mabbutt and Steve Perryman .

The evening started at 6.30pm with a champagne reception in the West Stand Boxholders Lounge followed by a tour of the changing rooms and pitch, ending with a five course gourmet meal in Whites. The MC for the event was Russ Williams from Virgin radio and as cabaret we were entertained by the comedian Mike Reid and that fantastic impersonator Kevin Connolly who took the “mickey” out of a number of football personalities present including Jurgen!.

The Club Chairman, Daniel Levy, made a welcome address and after dinner Jürgen gave an entertaining speech about his time as a player and especially his experiences with Tottenham Hotspur. During the evening there was a raffle for a number of prizes including two front row Directors Box tickets plus lunch for the home match against Arsenal on the 15th December. This was followed by an auction co-hosted by the comedian Bobby Davro and Roger Kitter which offered such diverse items as Jürgen’s Euro 1996 football boots, a round of golf at Abridge Golf Club with Teddy Sheringham and Darren Anderton and the opportunity to attend a training session with the England squad.

It was after 1am by the time we all left to go home. Everyone present agreed that the evening had been a great success and, more importantly, it raised a substantial amount of money for the Spurs Academy.
