Blue Plaque Application
Bobby Buckle was a founder, first captain, scorer of the first recorded Spurs goal, Treasurer, Secretary and Director of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
Without Bobby Buckle, there would be no Spurs! He wasn’t just one of the founders of the Hotspur football team he was at the centre of every major moment in its development off the field during the first twenty years of its existence.
While on the pitch he was the team captain ( just 13 years old) in that first season and is the first known goal scorer in the clubs history. A speedy winger he remained a main stay of the side for ten years
He attended Tottenham Grammar School from 1881 to 1883. Some Tottenham Grammar Old Boys have set up a small committee to try to get his influence on the founding and development of Spurs recognised.
This website brings together all the information that has been gathered to use in the application to get a Blue Plaque placed on Bobby Buckle’s family home at White Cottage, 7 White Hart Lane, Tottenham. This address was used as the first postal address for Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
To help the application we need to establish the level of support from those living and working in Tottenham, those involved with the Club and fans both in the UK and overseas
