A nostalgic look back on White Hart Lane with two of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club’s most inspirational players in Alan Mullery and Alan Gilzean.
An impressive midfielder and captain, Alan Mullery MBE made 373 competitive appearances for Spurs having joined the club from Fulham in 1964. Renowned for his strength, desire, hard work and enthusiasm Mullery was an FA Cup winner in 1967, which coincided with a regular run in the England team and the 1970 Mexico World Cup where he scored in the classic quarter-final match against West Germany. Mullery took over the Spurs captaincy from Dave Mackay and led the side to the 1971 League Cup. His passion for football is matched by a stream of anecdotes about the players that have filled his professional life, including Bobby Moore, Pele, Johnny Haynes, Jimmy Greaves and George Best.
Perthshire-born Alan ‘Gilly’ Gilzean helped Dundee to the Scottish League and had already been capped five times by Scotland when he was brought to White Hart Lane by Bill Nicholson in 1964. One of the best headers of the ball the Club has seen, Alan Gilzean struck up lethal partnerships with both Jimmy Greaves and Martin Chivers in a decade at the Lane.
Gilzean immediately hit it off with Greaves and was a member of the 1967 FA Cup winning team but the arrival of Martin Chivers the following season appeared to put his place in jeopardy. It didn’t turn out that way though as Greaves departed and, instead, Gilzean and Chivers led the line in a golden era as Spurs landed the League Cup in 1971 and 1973 and the UEFA Cup in 1972. Gilzean played 429 times for Spurs scoring 133 goals before eventually departing for South Africa in 1974.
To host the event is another Spurs favourite, Micky Hazard who made over 100 appearances for the club and was a member of the team that won the 1982 FA Cup and UEFA Cup in 1984.
