A two season stay at White Hart Lane saw Fred Boreham play only 20 games, but failed to stake a claim as a long term resident between the sticks.
His early career at Invicta Rother, when he also worked as a carpenter and Rye FC, which saw him gain a winners medal in the Tunbridge Wells Charity Cup in 1904. His gloves went with him to Tunbridge Wells Rangers and Leyton, as he moved up the footballing ladder and he was signed by Tottenham in May 1908.
His stay at Tottenham saw him switch between the first team and the reserves, who played their games in the South Eastern league, making 34 appearances for the second string.
In 1910, Fred re-joined Leyton and on retirement from the game, he re-entered the family tradition of beomcing a fisherman on his own boat back in Kent.
Fred Boreham died in 1951 and was buried in Rye at the end of August that year.
