Pat Jennings in the Spurs Hall of Fame

Spurs Legend Pat Jennings makes his entrance at his Induction into the Spurs Hall of Fame on October 21st

My good friends Bruce and Elaine Lewis, recently attended the induction of Pat Jennings into the Spurs Hall of Fame.

Once again, the event took place at Whites in Paxton Road, and was hosted by John Motson.

Pat seems to be demonstrating his usual dexterity when handling a football! Either that or he is signing it for charity!

Those present included Cliff Jones, Martin Peters, Ralph Coates, Terry Mancini (who was at Watford where Pat started his English footballing career), Chris Hughton, John Duncan, John Pratt, Martin Chivers, Phil Beal, Steve Perryman, Dennis Bond, and Theo Foley.

John Motson did his usual great job acting as Master of Ceremonies. Here he is with Cliff Jones at his side

Video footage was shown of Pat in his hey day for Spurs, and of course for Northern Ireland, and he spoke of their great 1982 World Cup campaign in Spain, when another ex-Spur, Gerry Armstrong, scored.

Funds were made from an auction, and Bruce and Elaine report that it was a very good, relaxed night, with good food and a full attendance. The next event will be on March 3rd, when the guest of honour will be Gary Mabbutt.

Cliff Jones spent a few years with Jennings as the man between the sticks at Tottenham

I have learnt from another source that profits from these events go to the Spurs in the Community scheme, and not into the club’s coffers, so all credit to the club for that, and their keen interest in the Community activities.

Pat Jennings was happy to spend as much time as required to sign those autographs

Thanks to Bruce and Elaine for these pictures.

Here's a nice close-up of the great man!
