Tottenham Quiz: Spurs Mc/N/O Team – Players Whose Surnames Begin With…

This Tottenham quiz is a team with players whose surnames begin with the letters ‘Mc’, ‘N’ or ‘O’. A shortage of players dictates that it is a combined team.

I will give you the initials of 10 Tottenham players, past and present, whose surnames begin with the letter ‘Mc’, ‘N’ or ‘O’. There will be a question about each of the players and the answers can be found on the link at the question. As there was only one goalkeeper who played in the 1930s I will start the team off by naming him

You get one point for the player’s name and 1 for answering each question correctly.
