A little bit about former Tottenham Goalie

Jennings was born in Newry. Now the city now has a permanent memorial dedicated to him.

In his long career of 23 years, he played for Arsenal, Watford, Spurs, Everton. He also made more than 100 appearances for his native Northern Ireland in international level.

It was a quiet amazing fact about him that in 1977 made the move from Spurs to Arsenal, where he went on to win the FA Cup.

There was a fun fact as he also won many trophies for Spurs. Like FA Cup: 1966–67, League Cup: 1970–71, 1972–73, FA Charity Shield: 1967, UEFA Cup: 1971–72.

For his services to football and charity, Jennings has received an MBE, an OBE, and a CBE. In 2003, he was inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame.

That’s good to witness Jennings recovering in a timely manner, and he is getting recognition in his hometown.
