The first photo has been snapped of one of White Hart Lane’s iconic golden cockerels after they made the temporary move to Wembley ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s match against Chelsea.
The two old birds will sit in the players’ tunnel at the national stadium to serve as inspiration to the Tottenham stars and let the visitors from Chelsea know that they are on enemy turf.
The cockerels sat on top of the Lane’s East and West stands until the 118-year-old stadium was demolished this summer to make way for Spurs‘ £850m new stadium that is being built on the site.
While the cockerels will have a home within the new stadium complex once it is completed for the 2018/19 Premier League season, they are set to serve an important purpose during Tottenham‘s season away at Wembley in the mean time and they will sit alongside a fitting person.
Here is the first photo of one of them, claimed to be in their new location in the tunnel and shared on social media.
“Our iconic golden cockerels that previously sat atop White Hart Lane will be joining us at Wembley for our season away. They will take pride of place in the players’ tunnel before every home game either side of the bronze bust of Sir Alf Ramsey, England’s World Cup winning manager and a key member of our 1951 league championship winning side,” said Spurs in a statement.
