Division Three (South) Bournemouth and Boscombe
Athletic hosted First Division Tottenham Hotspur in the Fifth Round of
the FA Cup, with the Dorset club being the second lowest team left in
the competition after a fine run.
The Cherries had already knocked out Burton Albion, Swindon Town, Accrington Stanley and Wolverhampton Wanderers to reach this stage and had proved defensively stubborn, having kept four clean sheets. It was the last round victory that most worried Tottenham, as Wolves had beaten us 3-0 and former Spurs player Freddie Cox's side were up for the meeting with having recorded a 1-0 win over the Midlands side.
Jimmy Anderson's Spurs had reached the semi-final in the previous season to be knocked out by Manchester City at Villa Park, holding great hopes to get that far again. However, a big Dean Court crowd saw the contrary with a shock 1-3 defeat for Spurs.
The game started with Spurs being denied a goal when Bobby Smith's effort was ruled out and the game swung the other way with Ollie Norris' opener, followed by Stan Newsham's second.
However, Terry Medwin made it 2-1 at half-time when he netted just before the break. Bournemouth restored their two goal margin minutes after the restart as Nelson Stiffle put the match beyond the second half efforts of Tottenham to go to the quarter-final.
The Spurs programme of the following home match referred to the home team's unusual tactics and this involved jumping in front of Spurs players taking throw-ins and standing with the arms spread wide just 10 yards away from Ted Ditchburn's kick-outs, but this should not have distracted Spurs, who became another victim of a FA Cup giant-killing.
