This morning we received this briliant email from the Senior Security Officer of Tottenham Hotspur, Sue Tilling. Read along and enjoy this beautiful appreciation for all our staff, stewards and above all you guys, our fan-tas-tic supporters! This email was addressed to our unparalleled Security and Organisation Officer Dirk Piens. Someone who delivers fantastic work daily for our club. Dirk wanted all stewards who helped with the greatest foreign operation of our club to hear this message. Obviously, Sue's words also apply to our supporters.
We also want to thank the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation for the warm welcome yesterday afternoon at White Hart Lane and for being a real inspiration for our football in the community foundation Voetbal in the stad .
Read along and enjoy those words of praise for all of you.
Just a quick note to say well done and all the very best of luck in the next Round – we shall be looking out for you and following your progress.
I also wanted to say that working with you and your Club has been the highlight of our journey in Europe. You were all so very friendly and welcoming and it has been an absolute pleasure to get to know you all, visit Gent and your wonderful stadium.
Please thank everyone that we came into contact with, especially your Stewards who were excellent last night – as of course, were your fans. The Police were saying that they were the best set of fans they have ever dealt with and the march from the Green Man was excellent. I am told that the landlord of the Green Man has echoed those thoughts.
I wanted to know if you had the contact details for the Female Steward who was working outside our section at your Stadium last week – she was not a Gent Steward but had come from Lokeren (?) to help out. Can I say, she and her team, were a credit to both their own Club and Gent and I wanted to thank her personally for her help when placed in a couple of difficult situations.
Good Luck to all, I hope we get the opportunity to work together again at some time in the future,
Very best wishes,
