It is with great sadness that we learn of the death of our former player Tony Marchi. He was born in Edmonton on 21 January 1933, joined as a youth player in the late 1940s, and made his first-team debut as a 17-year-old in a Second Division match against Grimsby Town at White Hart Lane in April 1950, under Arthur Rowe.
Tony Marchi was a former captain of the Club in the 1950s and was a member of our 1961 and 1963 European Cup Winners’ Cup-winning lineups.
Tony was the sole player on the squad for both of our First Division championships in 1951 and 1961, and he was flexible enough to fill a variety of positions.
Moreover, he left us in 1957 to join Juventus. He had paternal connections in Italy but owing to a technicality surrounding overseas player registration, he never played for them and instead spent a season on loan at Vicenza and Torino until Bill Nicholson brought him back to Spurs in 1959.
What Is Tony Marchi Death Cause?

Tony Marchi was widely regarded as capable of being a regular starter at most top-flight clubs, but he stayed loyal to Spurs and played six times in the league to help win the Double in 1961.
Before starting in our famous 5-1 victory over Atletico Madrid in the European Cup Winners’ Cup Final in May 1963, his team was recognized as the first British team to lift a major European trophy.
Besides that, the details of his family members are kept confidential.
