It was a dream come true for two lucky Spurs fans who made their way to a premiership game at Wembley Stadium after winning a pair of tickets.
Helen Langan from Lovat Close in Neasden, and Mick McGushin, from Larch Road, Cricklewood won a competition run by the Brent & Kilburn Times to see their heroes take on Burnley FC at the Premier League match on Sunday.
Ms Langan, who took her sister Anne to the game, said: “I’m still on cloud nine. It was absolutely brilliant and we couldn’t have asked for anything better apart from the result - everything went well until the 91st minute when they equalised. It was a draw, so that was ok.”
The research funding officer for the British Academy had visited White Hart Lane before it was demolished but for years had no luck getting tickets.
She added: “We were sitting behind the managers, we could see the players coming in and out.

Mr McGushin was equally thrilled with his win and took his friend Jerry Drummond.
