Spurs in History - 21st July

John White
21st July, 1964
A Sad Loss.

Spurs' Legend - John White

Tottenham Hotspur lost a great player with the tragic death of John White who was killed when struck by lightning while sheltering under a tree on Crews Hill Golf Course at Enfield.

John White had been an important member of the successful ‘Double’ team in the early 1960s.  He had been signed from Falkirk in October, 1959 and was a firm favourite, still having much to offer the club.

A Scottish international he brought great skill and vision to the team and was a sad loss to Spurs, Scotland and football but more importantly to all his family.
