A talented young centre half, who got the call to join up with Spurs, Albert Page had a large chunk of his career with the club taken by the years of World War II.
Albert had been playing as an amateur for Leyton, when spotted by Spurs and brought to White Hart Lane and was offered a professional contract in 1936. It was a year before Page made his debut, having to fight off the challenge from Jim Blyth to be the one who took over from Arthur Rowe.
It was only a year later, that he himself was replaced by Arthur Hitchins at centre-half and when war came, he played few games for Tottenham, turning out for Colchester United, Leyton Orient and Gillingham. When peace was reinstated, he returned to Spurs to find himself out of the first team reckoning and so, in 1946, he asked to leave the club. In the close season 1947, he was allowed to join Colchester United and went on to play for Chingford.
Settled in Walthamstow when he finished playing and served as a postman and a caretaker.
Albert Page died in January 1995.
