Tottenham to dedicate Man City clash to memory of Ray Clemence

T

ottenham are dedicating Saturday’s match against Manchester City to the memory of legendary former goalkeeper Ray Clemence.

Clemence died on Sunday at the age of 72 following a long battle with illness and Spurs are now planning to honour him this weekend.

The team will wear black armbands during the home fixture against City, with a minute’s applause to be held prior to kick-off.

Spurs will also be raising awareness for Prostate Cancer UK – a charity for whom Clemence was an ambassador as he battled with the disease.

Tottenham will also wear special edition t-shirts during the warm-up, featuring the charity’s logo, with Clemence’s name and number on the back.

Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff will wear Prostate Cancer UK’s familiar ‘Man of Men’ pin badges, with the charity’s logo also on the front cover of the matchday programme, too.

Prostate Cancer UK Chief Executive, Angela Culhane, said: “As well as being an iconic footballer for club and country and a hugely respected coach, Ray was an amazing man and we were proud to count him as part of the Prostate Cancer UK family.

“He helped put our ‘Man of Men’ badge at the heart of football and directly in front of football fans across the land.  

“That life-saving work is a wonderful legacy to leave alongside all his other stellar achievements and together with his family we will fight for everyone faced with a prostate cancer diagnosis until it’s a disease men and their families no longer fear.”
