A tricky left winger, Ken Flint was a good club man and played his part in the lesser sides at the club and was always willing to be available should the call come for a first team place.
Growing up in Nottinghamshire, Flint followed in the well trodden path to the local coal mine, but he found football as his escape route and left for Bedford Town, playing for the Southern League team as an inside forward or winger. Ken was spotted by Tottenham and came to the Lane in June 1947.
However, he found it hard to establish a permanent prescence in the team and only on five occasions did he play in the first eleven, scoring only once, but his infectious enthusiasm for the game spread to players around him in the Reserves and A teams, where he was part of the London Challenge Cup and Eastern Counties championship sides during his time at White Hart Lane, before going on to play for Aldershot, Leyton Orient, Bath City and Sittingbourne. He also won a Southern League title with Bath City.
Kenny Flint died on 21st May 2010 in Enfield, Middlesex.
