Spurs star Darren Anderton visits Welwyn Garden City

DELIGHTED Tottenham Hotspur fans got to meet one of their idols when former midfield ace Darren Anderton came to town.

And our competition winner Jane Harris was front of the queue to greet the ex-winger and get her copy of his autobiography Take Note! signed at Maher the Bookseller, in Welwyn Garden City.

Jane, 40, said: “I’ve been a Spurs supporter since the early 80s, and my son and me go to White Hart Lane as often as we can.”

She also got the star to sign a programme for her eight-year-old son Alex.

The book aims to set the record straight on Anderton’s injury-blighted career at Tottenham, which earned him the unwelcome soubriquet ‘Sicknote’.

The midfielder was also capped 30 times for England, scoring seven goals.

During his stint in the national team he played alongside Paul Gascoigne, Alan Shearer and Teddy Sheringham at Euro 96 under manager Terry Venables, who penned the foreword to the book.

On the autobiography’s title, Anderton told the WHT: “It’s just to have a little pop at the ‘Sicknote’ tag and when people read the book hopefully they’ll understand about the injuries.”

He added: “And hopefully people will enjoy it.”
