One of the heroes of Tottenham Hotspur’s all-conquering side of the early 1960s will be remembered in a special memorial game featuring the Spurs Legends team on May 18.
The official Spurs Legends team, which tours the UK regularly to help raise funds for worthy causes, is set to take on FC ScotSpurs, a dedicated team of Scottish fans of Tottenham, in a memorial match for John. Guesting in the FC ScotSpurs side will also be Flav, Charlie Marks, and Thelonious from The Fighting Cock podcast.
Poignantly, John’s son Rob is set to captain FC ScotSpurs against the team of ex-White Hart Lane favourites, which regularly features the likes of Mark Falco, Paul Miller, Tony Galvin, Clive Wilson and Darren Anderton.
The John White Memorial Match will take place on Saturday 18 May 2013, with kick-off at 2pm.
The match is being held at Colebrook Royals FC, Grange Farm Lane, Chigwell, Essex, IG7 6DP. (Close to Chigwell tube station)
With Tottenham’s first team playing at home the following day, all Spurs fans are
encouraged to attend what promises to be a memorable event.
Tickets will be on sale on the day, priced at £5 for adults and £1 for under-16s.
Money raised from the event will go to the Tottenham Tribute Trust, which is an
organisation that reaches out to members of the Spurs family who are facing hard times.
