1922 The second year running that Spurs had met Preston in the FA Cup semi-final, this time at Hillsborough.  It was fate that Cup holders Spurs should lose their grip on the trophy as a goal was disallowed when the ref blew up for a Preston player being "injured" upfield when the ball was on it's way into the net, but had not crossed the line.
