Justin Edinburgh’s son, Charlie, has thanked Tottenham Hotspur after the club pledged to auction off the match-worn shirts from Tuesday’s Carabao Cup clash against Chelsea in aid of the Justin Edinburgh 3 Foundation.

The foundation was set up in memory of the former Spurs defender, who tragically passed away from a cardiac arrest in June of last year, while serving as the manager of Leyton Orient.

Edinburgh was a fantastic servant for the Lilywhites through the nineties, making 195 appearances for the club (transfermarkt) and going on to lift the FA Cup.

The former defender and manager was a figure who is revered by both Spurs and Orient fans alike, with the Lilywhites even holding a friendly against the O’s last month to honour his memory.

On the back of Tottenham’s decision to auction the shirts from Tuesday’s derby against Chelsea and donate the proceeds to the Justin Edinburgh 3 Foundation, his son Charlie took to social media to express his gratitude to the Lilywhties.
