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.
