Sonny Walters j
oined Spurs in 1944 and played a crucial part in the side that went through as Division Two champions in 1950 to win the First Division the following season in 1951.

Born in Edmonton and Sonny played for Edmonton Schools and London Boys before signing for Tottenham at 14.  Played for the Juniors before spending a short spell at Walthamstow Avenue.  When he rejoined Spurs in 1944, as a professional, but he spent time in the Army where he represented that force against the French Army, Belgian Army, the Air Force and the Navy until he was demobbed in 1946.

Played on the wing, in front of Alf Ramsey, often receiving the ball out of defence from Ramsey and launching attacks on the flank.  He thought nothing of coming deep for the ball and taking it from the full back.  His play was appreciated outside the club and in 1949-50, Sonny represented England B v Holland at Newcastle and for the FA XI v The Army at Charlton.

Walters utilised his speed and anticipation to make the most of half chances to score or create goals and being a good finisher, he was the club's top scorer in the First Division title winning 1950-51 season.

 

As new players were brought through into the first team, Walters became one of the more mature players and eventually, he made way for younger legs and signed for Aldershot in 1957.

Sonny Walters died on 25th November 1970 and was buried at Edmonton Cemetery.
