Darren Anderton Tottenham Testimonial

This petition had 3,085 supporters

Darren Robert Anderton played for Tottenham Hotspur for 12 years from 1992-2004. Whilst being a Tottenham Hotspur Player he represented England on 30 Occasions scoring 7 Goals, including appearances at Euro 96 and World Cup 98.

During his 12 years with Tottenham Hotspur he was unfortunate with a few injuries, but still managed over 350 appearances and scored 48 goals in League and Cup. Sometimes playing through injuries for the benefit of the club and detriment to his own fitness. At the peak of his career after Euro 96 other clubs tried to persuade him to join them and he stayed loyal to a club that had supported him and given him his chance.

At the end of his Tottenham Career he never got chance to say goodbye and thank you to the White Hart Lane crowd. Unfortunately injured at the end of his last contract and mainly due to the fact he was not aware that he wouldn't be offered a new contract at the end of the season.

Darren was inducted into the Spurs Hall Of Fame in December 2009.

I am sure as a Tottenham Hotspur supporter and having watched Darren play you would agree that he deserves a chance to say goodbye and thank you. No better way than a testimonial match. This petition is the start of something that can hopefully persuade the correct people to make this happen.

Loyalty is rare in football these days and Darren was certainly loyal to Tottenham Hotspur.
