1875 Bob Clements, inside forward 1894-1898, born.

1983 Steve Archibald scores a hat trick to assist in a 4-1 win over the Potters.

John Lacy plays his last game for the club.

1993 A match that was staged to commemorate the great service that Eddie Bailey had given to Spurs as a player and assistant manager was overshadowed by events off the pitch as it was the day that news broke that Terry Venables had been sacked by Tottenham as Chief Executive of the club.  

This was to begin a long and unseemly court battle (played out mainly in the press) between Venables and Sugar that tore the club into two for a long time.  Other consequences that came out of this rift were the "bung" allegations of under-hand payments to ease transfers, the fine for financial irregularities at the club prior to Sugar taking control and the loss of some of the players who supported Venables and would not stay at the club while Sugar was in charge.

1995 Andy Turner plays his last match for Tottenham.
2000 David Ginola's 100th League and last appearance for Spurs.
