Black-And-White Snapshot: Dear Old Hilda And Phyllis Wander Onto White Hart Lane Pitch In Middle Of Match, 1972

By Chris Wright

Cracking vintage snapshot of a couple of doddery old dears disrupting proceedings by innocently meandering onto the White Hart Lane pitch in the middle of the game while Tottenham were taking on Manchester United in 1972…

“Excuse me young man, do you know where seats B18 and B19 are?”

    Just out of curiosity, why is this item flagged as Man U if it happened at White Hart Lane? Were the dears visiting supporters?

    • Chris says:

      @usrick: It’s also flagged as ‘Tottenham’ as well as ‘Retro’. Our categories are always listed in alphabetical order. Simple as that.

    If I remember correctly, they’re the Tea Ladies and they’re off to put the kettle on. They’re not actually on the pitch, it just looks that way from the perspective.
    Just call me Buzz Killington.
