A player brought up in the Tottenham area after he emigrated from Germany at the start of the 20th Century and who played for local side Park, who were one of Spurs' rivals when first formed, Max Seeburg broke new ground when he made it into the Tottenham team.

The centre forward moved to Cheshunt and then moved to Chelsea, although didn't play a game for them before coming to Spurs in May 1907.  Seeburg netted eight goals in his first season at the Lane in the Southern League, but when Tottenham moved into the Football League the next year, Max was only picked once, making him Tottenham's first overseas player. 

His lack of opportunities lead to him leaving to join Southern League Leyton in October 1908 and then got signed by Burnley in January 1910, where he stayed for one and a half seasons being used in a variety of positions.  His career then took him to Grimsby Town and Reading before he retired to manage a pub in 1913.  However, the outbreak of World War I lead to him being interned which ended his footballing days, as he was too old on release to continue playing.

On leaving the game, Max was a carpenter and later worked as a publican, club steward and cabinet maker before he became a naturalized British subject in 1920. 

Max Seeburg died in Thatcham, Newbury, Berkshire, England in 1972 aged 87.
