John Ripsher was known as the Bible Class teacher at the All Hallows Church in 1880s. He was elected the president and treasurer of the 1882 Tottenham Football team. In 1895, the team turned professional, and by 1898 they were a limited company. The club was renowned for its good spirit and its fair play and sportsmanship, attributed to Ripsher’s leadership.
