Ray Clemence is inducted into Tottenham's Hall of Fame
Ray Clemence has thanked Spurs fans after the former goalkeeper was inducted into Tottenham’s Hall of Fame on Thursday.
The ex-England international became the 41st inductee into the north London side’s Hall of Fame at White Hart Lane.
The former Liverpool goalkeeper Clemence, who played for Spurs between 1981 and 1987, helped Tottenham win the FA Cup in 1982.
And the former Spurs coach took to Twitter on Friday morning to recognise all the tributes paid to the ex-shot stopper.
A big thank you to everyone who sent me their best wishes and congratulations on being inducted into Spurs Hall of Fame.

It prompted his former England team-mate Peter Reid to pay his own tribute to the former Liverpool and Spurs man.
@RayClem1 well deserved , young man

Meanwhile, former Tottenham manager Glenn Hoddle was thrilled to see Clemence join the ex-midfielder in the club’s Hall of Fame.
“Congratulations to Ray – it’s well deserved,” Hoddle said. “I was fortunate enough to have my induction about six or seven years ago and again it was a lovely evening for the family and friends.
“The Hall of Fame is for people who have given good service to the Club and they are special players. Ray is in that category – he was a world-class goalkeeper internationally and at club level with what he did at Liverpool and then when he came down to Tottenham. I’m delighted to see that he’s been inducted tonight.”
