Tony Marchi Receives Help From The Tottenham Tribute Trust


The Tottenham Tribute Trust was delighted to be able to provide help for our former player Tony Marchi, recently.

Now aged 85, mobility isn’t as easy as it once was for our ex midfielder and a much needed stair lift was installed at Tony’s home.

Tony joined our youth set up in 1948 and made his first team debut as a 17-year-old under Arthur Rowe against Grimsby Town in April, 1950.

After a two year spell in Italy he returned in 1959 and made 6 appearances in our Double winning season. His best was still to come though as he started the 1963 Cup Winners Cup final as we brushed Atletico Madrid aside 5-1 in Rotterdam to become the first British team to lift a European trophy.

By the time he left in 1965, he had clocked up 260 appearances during his two spells scoring 7 goals.

Tony’s wife Marie contacted us to thank the Tribute Trust and everyone at the Club. She said, “Not only has the stair lift made it easier for Tony to get upstairs it has made all our lives much easier. It is so heart warming to know that a Club like Tottenham Hotspur still cares about the older players. We really can’t thank you enough.”
