I first saw Cliff play in Spurs 5 West Ham 1 at White Hart Lane in the late 60's.
Soon after I used to go to WHL on a Saturday to watch reserve games - yes, in the "old days" reserve matches were always at the stadium of the home team !!
Great days too - you could go anywhere in the stadium - up on the "shelf" - behind both goals - under the main stand - you could do laps of the stadium during half-time to keep warm !!
Cliff's book captures all those great days, and gives a fascinating insight into life at Tottenham - and his other clubs.
Couldn't put the book down !!
My only gripe is that Cliff didn't make mention of the fact that me and my mate Paul used to serve Mrs Jones in the Co-Op ;-)
......and when Cliff and his son Steve thrashed Paul and myself at tennis in Connaught Gardens - Cliff always was a WINNER !!

There have been many great players over the years, and especially playing for Tottenham Hotspur. Greaves, Blanchflower, Hoddle, Mackay and the list goes on and on; too exhausting to name them all here. But one name that belongs to that hall of fame is Cliff Jones. Clifford William Jones, born 1935, is a former Welsh football international and a member of that all-time great Spurs team that won the double in 1960/61. Not only that but he was considered - at the time (and some say still is) - the best left winger in the world. You won’t get any argument from Spurs fans.
Cliff Jones was born in Swansea, and first played League football for Swansea City (then Swansea Town) in 1952. He appeared 25 times as a winger for the club before being called into the Welsh national side. Cliff was part of the Wales side that beat England 2–1 at Ninian Park on 22 October 1955. The goal Cliff scored on that magical night (at least for Welsh supporters) he credited as his best ever goal. He played 59 times in all for Wales, scoring 16 goals for his beloved Wales.
In 1958, his life changed forever. He joined Bill Nicholson’s up and coming team. He was bought for £35,000 fee. Today he would be worth millions. In 1960/61 season – the first season I started going to Spurs – he helped Spurs capture the double, the first club to do so that century. A year later, he helped his team, again, recapture the FA Cup. The following year he won another trophy; this time Spurs became the first British club to win a European trophy, the European Cup winners’ Cup. In all he played 318 games for Spurs, scoring 135 league goals (1958-1968).
To celebrate his success he has just released his autobiography ‘Cliff Jones: A Wonderful Life’. This is his story.

A brilliant and honestly written autobiography. I witnessed the great man in action wearing the Spurs shirt in the 1960s,. When he received the ball 50,000 plus fans fell silent as Cliff accelerated at speed towards the opposition penalty area, a sight to behold. I have had the pleasure of meeting Cliff, you will never find a nicer man, a man happy to talk Spurs and his life at the club. A great read by a great man.
