Keith Burkinshaw had friends in Bengeo and was asked to open the Bengeo Cottage Gardener’s Summer Show in the early 1980’s when he was the manager of Tottenham Hotspur FC.  He was manager from 1976 until 1984.

  • Not only did Keith Burkinshaw have friends in Bengeo but he lived there while manager of THFC. I used to deliver his Sunday Newspaper and one morning after Spurs had suffered a particularly unpleasant defeat, I handed him his paper while he was walking his dogs, said ‘good morning Mr Burkinshaw’ to which he replied ‘f*** off’! It would have been around 1980.
