Henry dies aged 80


Tottenham have announced their double-winning left-back Ron Henry has died aged 80.

The former Spurs and England defender won the league and FA Cup double with the Premier League side in 1961 plus the FA Cup in 1962 and the European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1963.

Henry made one appearance for England in February 1963 – in a European Championship qualifier against France in Paris – and went on to make 247 league games for Tottenham, scoring one goal.

Spurs confirmed on their official website that Henry died on Saturday afternoon.

The club said in a statement: “It is with great sadness that we record the death of our double-winning left-back Ron Henry who passed away this afternoon at a Harpenden hospice.

“We extend our condolences to his family at this sad time.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. It is amazing to me that great footballers and legends of our great club are not looked after better. We only get to hear of them when they die nearly anonymously. A great shame. Without Ron Henry (and his like) we would not be able to hold our heads up so high as Spurs faithful
