Watford Colosseum

Spurs legends talk about their action-packed careers as football stars in the Tottenham Legends in Conversation show.

Soccer fans are invited to join past club captain Ledley King plus former midfield dynamo and team manager Tim Sherwood as they discuss the big games, dressing room and training ground stories, managers, fall outs and everything you wanted to know about playing and managing a successful football club.

Compering the lively show will be TV presenter Hayley McQueen – anchor on Sky Sports News for many years.

Theatregoers will get a chance to pose questions to the stars during the evening and VIP tickets – affording the opportunity for a meet and greet and photo opportunity with the legendary players before the show.

Limited availability means ticket purchasers should check with box office when booking their seats.

LEDLEY KING

268 appearances, 10 goals

A one-club man, spending his entire career at Spurs – from 1999 to 2012 – Tottenham runs through Ledley King’s veins.

Now an ambassador for the club, the tall central defender made 21 appearances for England, scoring twice and playing in both the World Cup and Euros.

Ledley is rightly named among the top 25 players to have ever pulled on a Spurs shirt by The Times newspaper and overcame knee injuries to notch up an incredible 321 competitive matches for the Lilywhites.

In the latter part of his career, Ledley was plagued by his chronic knee problems, for which no effective treatment was found. Instead of training with the rest of the Spurs squad, he undertook fitness exercises on his own, allowing him to play one first team game per week.

His former manager Harry Redknapp marvelled at Ledley's ability to be able to perform at Premiership level despite his limited training regime.

TIM SHERWOOD

93 appearances, 12 goals

After captaining Blackburn Rovers to the Premier League title, the midfield dynamo was brought to Spurs by George Graham for a reported £3.8m in 1999. During his first season with the Lilywhites, he made the first of his three appearances for England at the age of 30.

Following his retirement as a player, Tim returned to White Hart Lane in 2008 to take up the role of assistant team coach under new manager Harry Redknapp. During what proved to be a five-year spell, Tim  progressed to technical director in 2012 working wonders with the under-21s team.

Following the departure of André Villas-Boas as manager in 2013, he was made head coach, leading Spurs to a sixth-place finish in the top flight, before being replaced by club chairman Daniel Levy at the end of the season. Claims to fame during this time include handing Harry Kane his Premier League debut and a 59 per cent win ratio.

Renowned for his straight talking, Tim is a regular face on Sky Sports and has never been shy of voicing an opinion.
