It is a sad day for Spurs fans everywhere, as news broke of the death of the Tottenham legend Peter Baker aged 84.

Baker was the right-back in the Double winning side of 1961. After joining the club from non-league Enfield he would make 342 appearances, winning the league title, two FA Cup and the European Cup Winners’ Cup during his time at White Hart Lane.

Here’s how Spurs fans and former players paid tribute to the great.



  1. Saw Peter play in late fifties and early 60s and met him at legends THFC.He attended new training ground and as cultured right back was excellent defender.The only winger to give him a roasting was Clive Clark of West Brom.Danny was in front of him and he always covered the great mans attacking play and was underrated for this reason.A steady Eddie that kept a excellent back in Mel Hopkins out of the double team.Shame only big Maurice left of the defence of this excellent side.Peter was one club man and one of our own and many thousands of Spurs fans and former players will regret his passing.RIP Peter.
