It is with great sadness that we report the death of one of our greatest supporters and ex-Captains, Ray Clemence, who died on Saturday, November 14th.
Ray was diagnosed with cancer in 2005 and had been battling the disease bravely for the last fifteen years.
His distinguished career in football included five league titles and three European Cups with Liverpool between 1967 and 1981. He also lifted the FA Cup, League Cup and two Uefa Cups during his time at Anfield.
In total, he made 470 league appearances for Liverpool before joining Tottenham. During his seven-year spell at Spurs, Clemence helped the club retain the FA Cup in 1982 and clocked up 330 appearances.
The legendary goalkeeper, capped by England on 61 occasions, also worked on the north London club’s coaching staff and was inducted into the Tottenham Hotspur Hall of Fame in November 2014.
He made his England debut in 1972 and spent the majority of his 11-year international career in a battle with Peter Shilton for the number-one shirt.
He captained the Three Lions for the first and only time in a narrow defeat to Brazil at Wembley in 1981 and later took up the role of goalkeeper coach with the Football Association.
He was Captain of the Variety Club Golf Society in 2009.
