Charles Regan was an amateur player, who had a short career with Spurs, but played for many years with great distinction.
One of the footballers of his day who shunned payment for his services, Charlie started his playing days with local clubs called Clarendon and Woodville, before he moved to the non-league club Ilford. Spotted playing for the Essex club between 1894 and 1896, a big move to a respected non-league side Clapton ensued and he stayed with them during his time with Tottenham.
Initially signing on as a Southern League player, Regan played a friendly for Tottenham and while on good terms with Clapton, continued playing for the East London side, as well as turning out for Sheffield and Glossop. He turned out for Spurs on four more occasions, but all of these were friendlies apart from a United League match against Rushden, which turned out to be his only first team senior outing.
On leaving his arrangement with Spurs, Regan played at Gravesend United for three seasons and then Richmond Association, despite maintaining his ties with Clapton.
During his career, Charlie represented London and Essex County leagues.
