David Howells

335 apps, 27 goals

1986-1998

After coming up through the ranks at the club, midfielder David Howells made his senior debut as a teenager in 1986, scoring in a 2-1 win against Sheffield Wednesday.

Some 12 years later, the Guildford-born grafter was still at the club and had racked up 335 appearances, scoring 27 goals along the way.

His sound technical ability allowed him to do a variety of jobs for the team in the middle of the park, with his crowning glory coming in 1991 as he helped us win the FA Cup with victory over Nottingham Forest in the final, plus a memorable triumph over Arsenal in the semis.

He left us for Southampton in 1998 but retains the respect of Spurs fans everywhere for his dedicated stint in our colours.

Tony Galvin

1979-1987

Republic of Ireland: 29 caps, one goal

Plucked from non-league Goole in 1978 on the recommendation of legendary former Spurs manager Bill Nicholson, Tony Galvin went on to enjoy tremendous success in our colours.

He demonstrated pace and power down the left wing and was part of our impressive side of the early-1980s which picked up back-to-back FA Cups in 1981 and 1982.

He continued to be a vital member of the team throughout that decade, adding to his honours collection when helping us win the UEFA Cup in 1983/84.

Tony made a total of 273 appearances for us, the last of which came in May 1987, against Nottingham Forest. His goal tally in our colours stands at 31 in all competitions.

Capped 29 times by the Republic of Ireland, he went on to represent Sheffield Wednesday and Swindon Town upon his departure from Spurs.

John Pratt

415 apps, 49 goals

1969-1980

John Pratt was a local boy from day one. Born in Hackney on June 26, 1948, he played for Brentford before joining us on the recommendation of Terry Medwin. Initially signing as an amateur, he was switched from an early central defensive berth to a midfield role, turning professional in November, 1965, and making his Division One debut at Arsenal in March, 1969.

His tremendous work ethic saw him go on to notch a highly impressive tally of 415 appearances for us, scoring 49 goals, before departing to join American side Portland Timbers in 1980.

During his time at the Lane, John helped us to UEFA Cup glory in 1972 and League Cup success the following season, while he also collected a runners-up medal in the former competition when we lost the 1974 final to Feyenoord.

John was back with the Club a few years later in various coaching roles before becoming assistant to first team boss Peter Shreeves until his departure in May, 1986.

Steve Sedgley

1989-1994

A member of our FA Cup-winning side of 1991, Enfield-born Steve Sedgley was a Spurs fan as a boy but started out with Coventry City before he achieved his dream move to Spurs in July, 1989.

His versatility meant that he was equally at home in the centre of defence or the heart of midfield where he was the perfect counterbalance to the more exuberant skills of Paul Gascoigne.

After more than 200 senior games in our colours, he left for Ipswich Town in 1994 and later played for Wolves.

Mickey Hazard

170 apps, 25 goals

1980-1985 / 1993-1994

One of the truly talented midfielders of his generation, Micky Hazard grew up in Sunderland but we spotted his potential early on and he came down to London as a teenager to join our youth set-up.

Making his senior debut in a 3-0 home win over Everton in April, 1980, he went on to enjoy a glittering career that saw him make 170 appearances over two separate spells between 1980 and 1994, scoring 25 goals in the process.

An FA Cup winner in 1982, he was a key member of the side that lifted the UEFA Cup two years later – memorably scoring in the semi-final against Hajduk Split to put us through to the final and losing his contact lenses during the celebrations that followed his goal!

Cliff Jones

378 apps, 159 goals

1958-1968

Wales: 59 caps, 16 goals

Seen as the best winger in the world in his heyday, Cliff Jones was one of the great entertainers of the famous double team. Famed for his high-velocity dribbles down either flank, the Welshman possessed a body swerve that would leave defenders for dead and unmatched courage despite his slender 5ft 7ins frame.

Indeed, many point to his bravery as his greatest asset and Cliff was never afraid to throw himself in where the boots were flying if he had half a chance of getting the ball or scoring a goal – and he had the injuries to show for it.

Capped by Wales at 18, Cliff starred for home-town team Swansea before a £35,000 deal took him to Spurs in February, 1958. It wasn't the brightest of starts for Cliff though and after enjoying Wales' run to the quarter-finals of the 1958 World Cup - ended by Pele's Brazil – he broke his leg in the pre-season of 1958-59.

But he came back stronger than ever to play a key role in the 'glory, glory years' of the early 1960s. Cliff thrilled the crowds as we claimed the league and FA Cup double in 1961 – he scored 19 goals in 35 appearances in both competitions – followed by the FA Cup again in 1962 and European Cup Winners' Cup in 1963.

A constant in the Welsh side throughout his career, Cliff added the FA Cup to his collection in 1967 before being the last member of the double side to leave to club, a cut-price move to Fulham, aged 33, in 1968. With 159 goals, Cliff remains fifth in our all-time goalscoring list.

He won his final two caps at Craven Cottage before ending his career in non-league circles.

Cliff went on to teach PE and is still a regular face around the club.

Clive Allen

135 apps, 84 goals

1984-1988

England: 5 caps

One of the great modern-day goalscorers, Clive Allen rattled in a record 49 goals in an incredible 1986-87 campaign. Snapped up from QPR in August, 1984, Clive followed in the family footsteps of his father, Les, a member of Bill Nicholson's double-winning team of 1960-61.

Clive showed his prowess in front of goal for Palace and QPR – he played against us in the 1982 FA Cup Final – and he'd already earned his first full England cap when he joined us in the summer of 1984.

Injuries hit hard in his first two seasons at Spurs but things took off spectacularly in 1986-87 as he landed a lone-striking role in David Pleat's new 4-5-1 system, feeding off the likes of Glenn Hoddle, Chris Waddle and Ossie Ardiles.

Lethal around the penalty area, Clive scored 33 league goals as we finished third in Division One, an amazing 12 as we reached the semi-final of the League Cup and another four as we reached the FA Cup Final, including a goal in the final as we lost out to Coventry City.

His goals could have helped land a treble but he had to settle for an individual double in the shape of the PFA and Football Writers' Player of the Year Awards.

Clive moved to Bordeaux in March, 1988, and went on to play for Manchester City, Chelsea, West Ham, Millwall and Carlisle before returning to the club on the coaching staff on Jacques Santini's arrival in 2004. He took over the reserves and lifted the Premier Reserve League title in 2006. He held the role of Development Coach for five years and was a member of Harry Redknapp's coaching team until 2012. He's now a regular pundit on TV and radio.

Alan Mullery

373 apps, 30 goals

1964-1972

England: 35 caps, one goal

An inspirational midfielder and captain, Alan Mullery joined the club in 1964 and went on to make 373 appearances for us, proudly lifting the League Cup in 1971 and UEFA Cup in 1972.

A star as a youngster at Fulham, Alan had the unenviable task of following in the footsteps of another inspirational captain, Danny Blanchflower, who led the team to the double in 1961, FA Cup in 1962 and European Cup Winners' Cup in 1963.

He was a different type of midfielder though and a driving force with his strength, desire, sheer hard work and enthusiasm in the central areas.

Alan helped us win the FA Cup in 1967 and that coincided with a regular run in the England team and a starring role in the ultimately ill-fated 1970 World Cup in Mexico. After the memorable group match against Pele's Brazil, Alan scored as England went 2-0 up against West Germany in the quarter-finals, only to go out 3-2.

'Mullers' took over the Spurs captaincy from the great Dave Mackay in 1968 and led us to the League Cup in 1971. A serious pelvic injury ruled him out for six months and he returned on loan to Fulham to help his recovery. However, he was recalled and responded with a crucial away goal against AC Milan in the 1972 UEFA Cup and then the clincher against Wolves in the second leg of the final.

Alan returned to Fulham in 1972 and went on to make 200 more appearances for the Cottagers, including the 1975 FA Cup Final. He won the Football Writers' Player of the Year award in 1974-75 and was awarded the MBE. After retiring, he managed Brighton, Charlton, QPR and Crystal Palace.

Martin Chivers

1968-1976

England: 24 caps, 13 goals

Fourth in our all-time list of goalscorers, Martin Chivers bagged 174 goals in 367 games for the club.

Signed in January, 1968, to accompany Jimmy Greaves and Alan Gilzean up front, 'Big Chiv' hit 16 goals in 34 games before an injury set him back. But he would soon return and the honours piled up with the goals.

Capped 12 times by England, Chivers scored both goals as we toppled Aston Villa in the 1971 League Cup Final and bagged another double as we beat Wolves to lift the 1972 UEFA Cup.

He started in our 1973 League Cup win and was there again as we lost out in the 1974 UEFA Cup.

Chivers eventually left for Swiss outfit Servette in July, 1976. He returned to Norwich City two years later and after a spell at Brighton he managed Dorchester, Norwegian side FC Vard and Barnet.

Graham Roberts

1980-1986

England: 6 caps

Renowned for his tough-tackling approach, Graham Roberts was snapped up from non-league Weymouth by Keith Burkinshaw in 1980 and went on to become a cult hero at the Lane.

The defender played a key role as we landed the FA Cup in 1981 and 1982 and then captained the team on his glory, glory night in 1984.

Taking on Anderlecht in the second leg of the UEFA Cup Final on our own patch, 'Robbo' showed his sheer determination to win by grabbing a vital goal on the night and then – having taken the game to penalties – scored in the shootout to lift the trophy on our behalf.

In all, he made 287 appearances for us between 1980 and 1986 before going on to play for Rangers, Chelsea and West Brom among others.

Pat Jennings

590 apps

1964-1977

Northern Ireland: 119 caps

Pat Jennings is one of the finest goalkeepers to ever grace the game.

'Big Pat' played 590 games for Spurs between 1964-1977 and another 300-plus at Arsenal before winding down his career in a second spell at White Hart Lane. He also played 119 times for Northern Ireland, including two World Cups.

Jennings made such an impact at Watford after moving from Newry Town in 1963 that Bill Nicholson splashed out £27,000 for a 19-year-old with only 48 league appearances behind him. It proved to be one of the legendary manager's greatest-ever signings.

In his time at White Hart Lane, he won the FA Cup in 1967, League Cup in 1971 and 1973, UEFA Cup in 1972 and on a personal level, the PFA (1975-76) and Football Writers' Player Of The Year (1972-73) awards.

Jennings, at his peak the best goalkeeper in the world, still helps our academy keepers with coaching sessions at Hotspur Way.

Gary Mabbutt

611 apps, 38 goals

1982-1998

England: 16 caps, one goal

A model professional in the modern era, Gary Mabbutt played 611 games for Spurs in 16 years, placing him second only to the great Steve Perryman in our all-time appearance list and captained the team to FA Cup glory in 1991.

Numbers alone don't tell the whole story though. Gary battled throughout his career against the affects of diabetes and managed to overcome a serious facial injury in 1993 and a broken leg that ruled him out of the 1996-97 season.

Signed for £105,000 from Bristol Rovers in August, 1982, on the recommendation of Bill Nicholson, 'Mabbsy' showed his versatility by starting his Spurs career in midfield before finally settling in at centre-half.

He soon tasted glory in the 1984 UEFA Cup triumph before forming one of the best central defensive partnerships seen at the Lane with Richard Gough in the 1986-87 season which saw us finish third in the league, reach the semi-finals of the League Cup and, unfortunately for him, saw his own goal help Coventry City to victory on the 1987 FA Cup Final.

Now captain, Gary fulfilled every schoolboy's dream when he led the team out at Wembley for the 1991 FA Cup Final and collected the trophy from Princess Diana following the 2-1 win against Forest.

Capped 16 times by England, including key Euro 1992 qualifiers against Turkey and Poland, Gary recovered from the serious facial injury and broken leg to continue until the end of the 1997-98 campaign, when he left the club and soon announced his retirement.

Awarded the MBE, Gary is now a Club Ambassador as well as being an Ambassador for the Prince's Trust and Patron of Diabetes UK.

Osvaldo Ardiles

1978-1988

Argentina: 63 caps, eight goals

Forever remembered for wanting to 'win the cup for Tottingham', Ossie Ardiles did just that in an amazing chapter of the club's history.

Keith Burkinshaw completed the coup for Ardiles and compatriot Ricky Villa after the pair, particularly Ardiles, starred in Argentina's World Cup triumph in 1978.

Superbly skilful and determined for such a slight figure in the English game, Ardiles immediately forged a dream team in midfield with Glenn Hoddle as we won two FA Cups and the UEFA Cup in 1984.

Of course, there were difficulties. Ardiles left for home to play for Argentina in April, 1982, but the Falklands conflict meant he did not return until December. He then broke his leg and injuries hampered the rest of his time at the Lane.

He moved to QPR in 1988 and returned to manage us in an ill-fated spell in 1993-94. He also managed at Swindon Town, Newcastle United and in Japan. He currently serves us as a Club Ambassador.

Paul Allen

1985-1993

An energetic midfielder, Paul Allen came up through the ranks at West Ham United where he made his senior debut in 1980 at the age of 17.

The Aveley-born player featured in a trio of FA Cup finals during his career, including our 1987 defeat, before helping us to lift the trophy four years later as we triumphed over Nottingham Forest in the 1991 showpiece.

He moved to Spurs in June, 1985, and went on to serve us with distinction, amassing 370 senior appearances as he played consistently over the next eight years.

Paul left us for Southampton in 1993 and later played for Luton Town, Stoke City, Swindon Town, Bristol City and Millwall. He is now a respected employee of the PFA.

Mark Falco

1979-1986

Mark Falco's dedication to Spurs has spanned more than four decades – and he's still loving every minute.

The home-grown striker made a goalscoring senior debut for us in a 3-1 league victory at Bolton Wanderers at the end of the 1978-79 season, having come up through our youth ranks, before establishing himself as a first team regular at the start of the 1980s.

In 1981, he enjoyed the distinction of scoring a brace in front of more than 92,000 fans at Wembley as we drew 2-2 with league winners Aston Villa in the Charity Shield, before playing in the early rounds of our successful defence of the FA Cup in 1982.

He then tasted glory on the European stage in 1984, scoring his spot kick in our penalty shootout victory over Anderlecht in the UEFA Cup Final.

Mark left us for Watford in 1986 and was the last home-grown striker to score 20 goals in a single season for us until that title was taken by a certain Harry Kane.

He later ventured north of the border to represent Rangers, before returning to London with Queens Park Rangers and Millwall.

These days, Mark remains a popular figure around the club and continues to lead our Spurs Legends team.
