Grandfather Was A Spurs Fan

Jo's post today reminded me of a story my late Grandma told me.

My paternal Grandfather was a Spurs fan, he was a season ticket holder back in the 1950s, in one of the areas where you stood of course. My Grandmother though thought that perhaps as her sons got older that she and my Grandfather should spend some more time together of a weekend. Apparently my grandfather thought about this, so the next home match he got two tickets in the seated area for himself and my Grandma on the basis that if she enjoyed it she could go to the matches with him.

They watched a game against Chelsea, Jimmy Greaves was still playing for the blues. Grandma was fairly unmoved by the experience. She didn't get her own season ticket.
