FORMER Spur Jimmy Neighbour, part of the Lilywhites' 1971 League Cup winning team, died of a heart attack at a Buckhurst Hill hospital on Saturday.
At the time of his death Neighbour, 58, had been recovering from a recent hip replacement operation.
The Chingford-born winger scored 11 times in 156 first team appearances in 10 years as a full-time player with Tottenham from April 1966 to September 1976.
Neighbour made his league debut for Tottenham in October 1970 and the next year bagged a League Cup winners' medal in the 2-0 victory over Aston Villa in the Wembley final.
Neighbour's playing career continued at West Ham, Norwich City, Seattle Sounders and Bournemouth, making 304 league appearances by the time he hung up his boots in February 1983.
Neighbour returned to Spurs in 2000 to coach the U-17s and led them to the FA Academy League Championship in his second season. He left the club in July 2005.
