Pat Jennings spent thirteen years at White Hart Lane with Tottenham Hotspur, where he played in 472 league games for Spurs, and 591 in all competitions. He won the FA Cup in 1967, the League Cup in 1971 and 1973, and the UEFA Cup in 1972. He also scored once, in the 1967 Charity Shield, from his own area, kicking the ball from his hands and sending a large punt down the field that bounced over Manchester United goalkeeper Alex Stepney and into the net. In 1973 the Football Writers’ Association named him as its footballer of the year. Three years later he won PFA’s version of the award – he was the first goalkeeper to receive this accolade.
