Tottenham's Premier League resurgence under Tim Sherwood continued with a 3-1 win at Swansea City on Sunday, and their supporters paid an amusing tribute to Only Fools and Horses' Roger Lloyd-Pack.

Lloyd-Pack, who died at the age of 69 last week from pancreatic cancer, was a lifelong Spurs fan often seen at White Hart Lane, and one of the country's best set of away fans paid tribute to the actor, best known as "Trigger".

"Trigger, he only had one broom" they sang in reference to the classic gag involving the street sweeper's 20-year-old broom which had "17 new heads and 14 new handles in its time".

There was also "We love you Trigger" and "Stand up for Trigger, he's one of our own."

So iconic is Lloyd-Pack's character from Only Fools it was the go-to nickname for footballers of a certain generation. Arsenal's former midfielder Ray Parlour, meanwhile, invariably referred to teammates as simply "Dave".
