TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR v WEST HAM UNITED MATCH DAY PROGRAMME – SATURDAY APRIL 27TH, 2019
…Tottenham Hotspur stadium…the EIGHTH WONDER OF THE WORLD!
TREVILLION CELEBRATES 80 YEARS A
On Sunday 5th March Paul Trevillion, enjoyed an 80 years SPURS FAN lifetime milestone. Sky Sports News TV gave the perfect start to the day with an interview by Sky Sports Top Reporter, Gary Cotterill in Trevillion’s studio.
Thanks to Donna Cullen, Executive Director of Tottenham Hotspur FC, Trevillion was invited as guest of honour, at White Hart Lane for Tottenham Hotspur v Everton, to celebrate 80 years supporting Spurs at ’The Lane’.
Trevillion saw his first match way back in 1937, when as a three year old he was spellbound by Everton’s Dixie Dean. Tottenham won 4-3, but Trevillion’s only memory is of Dixie Dean! Fast forward twenty years and Trevillion was privileged to work with his hero Dixie Dean on his illustrated newspaper life story featured in the Liverpool Echo.
A memorable pitch side interview with Paul Miles for Spurs TV and an 80 years Birthday presentation by Tottenham Hotspur Club Ambassador and THFC legend Ledley King – a unique gift from all at Tottenham Hotspur – a match play shirt with TREVILLION’S own squad number ’80′ made it a unbelievable Birthday celebration which began with the Sky Sports News interview on loop every hour until kick off, which Trevillion enjoyed in the THFC Boardroom alongside Chairman Daniel Levy, Donna Cullen and Trevillion’s guest music composer, David Courtney along with many other distinguished guests.
History repeated itself. In 2017, Tottenham Hotspur 80 years on, once again were set to play Everton. Trevillion enjoyed a thrilling match with two goals from Harry The Hurri-Kane, and a third from Dele (spell ‘Pele’) Alli The result 3-2 to Spurs!
“Tottenham beat Everton 4-3 the first time I saw the Spurs play”, remembered Trevillion, “Only Dixie Dean remains in my memory from that day, but on Sunday 5th March 2017 every moment of the Spurs v Everton game will remain a MEMORY. Especially the ROAR OF THE SPURS FANS – I AM PROUD TO BE ONE OF THEM CHEERING ON THE TOTTENHAM LEGENDS OF TODAY. We at Tottenham have a great team to be proud of and a stadium about to dwarf all others!”
“COME ON YOU SPURS!”
