Former Spurs official photographer Mick Eason dies at 77

Michael Eason, Tottenham’s official photographer in the 1980s,  has died at the age of 77.

Eason – nicknamed Micky Grecian because of his premature grey hair – started his working life as a BT engineer before working as a freelance photographer for the national newspapers.

He was regarded as an excellent photographer with a great work ethic and Mr Reliable. SJA member Eason, who was based in Hertfordshire, finally hung up his cameras five years ago when a combination of age, ill-health and technology proved too much of a barrier.
