Paul Robinson has revealed that White Hart Lane was one of his most favourite grounds during his career after a four-year spell with Tottenham.
Spurs will play their last game at the old stadium on Sunday against Man United, as they relocate to Wembley Stadium next season while White Hart Lane is demolished.
Speaking to Sky Sports News on Tuesday morning (9 May), 41-time England international Robinson revealed that Spurs move from White Hart Lane to Wembley is just a sign of their growth.
Former Leeds and Blackburn goalkeeper Robinson also revealed that scoring against Watford at the Lane is one of his most favourite memories, praising the fans for their home support.
“I have plenty of memories at the Lane, one of my stand out memories being scoring at the Lane. I’ve still got the ball and the kit from the day,” Robinson said.

“It’s definitely one of my favourite grounds of my career, the supporters there are brilliant. They stick with the team through thick and thin. It’ll be sad to leave, but as they grow in stature it’s part of the game.
“They could probably fill that stadium now twice over, but it just shows their growth.”
The 37-year-old goalkeeper made a huge 173 appearances for Spurs during his stay, where he kept 50 clean sheets and helped Spurs hold aloft the 2008 League Cup.
The goalkeeper scored against Watford in a 3-1 victory at the Lane back in March 2007, as he pumped a hopeful ball downfield from 80 yards out that bounced over Ben Foster.
Robinson is yet to retire as he remains as back-up to Burnley number one Tom Heaton with Sean Dyche’s side, nine years on after leaving Spurs in 2008.
This season, Robinson has made three Premier League appearances for the Lancashire side, but could be set to leave the Clarets with only two months left to run on his current contract.
