I loved football but didn’t support a club. A few days later a long letter and signed photo arrived from a footballer who was playing at the top of his game and he was also a type one diabetic his name Gary Mabbutt. After a few more letters between us i was now a Tottenham fan and my hero will always be Gary. We have spoken many times over the years and share both our diabetic stories and love for spurs!
