Video: Spurs pay tribute to their first ever fixture against Notts County.
Notts County could be the first club to play at Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur’s new 61,000 capacity stadium.
Magpies chairman Alan Hardy confirmed on Twitter this afternoon that the club have made contact with the North London club to arrange a friendly at their new stadium – potentially the first game at the new ground.
Spurs played their final game at White Hart Lane yesterday in a 2-1 victory over Manchester United.
Moving to ‘The Lane’ in 1899 the club’s first ever match at their beloved ground came against Notts County on September 4 1899.
The Magpies lost the away match 4-1 in front of around 5,000 supporters.
Premier League Tottenham paid homage to that first ever fixture on Sunday with the corner flags at White Hart Lane featuring the Notts badge and the date of the fixture.
