Tony Galvin A Spurs winger from 1978 to 1988, Galvin was noted for his strong running and crossing ability in 273 matches for the Lilywhites.  On finishing his playing days, he was brought in at St. James' Park by manager Ossie Ardiles as Assistant Manager.

Paul Gascoigne Mercurial talent who made headlines on and off the pitch.

Peter McWilliam Newcastle player from 1902 to 1911, winning championship medals in 1907 and 1909, with an FA Cup medal in 1910, also playing on the losing side in 1905, 1906 and 1908.  Became Spurs manager in December 1912.  Won the Second Division, FA Cup and came runners-up in the First Division before leaving in 1927.  Returned to take charge from 1938 up to the start of World War II.
McWilliam was the first footballer to play in and then manage and FA Cup winning side.

Jack Richardson Signed for Spurs from Hamilton Academicals in 1924 and made his debut in 1927 at left back.  After 38 appearances, he moved to Reading for £500 in June 1929, where he played 128 games in five years at Elm Park.

Joe Sibley A right winger who starred for Tottenham as a war-time guest player featuring in three matches during January 1942 scoring once.  After returning to his club - Southend United - Joe signed for Newcastle in February 1947 where he scored six goals in 32 first team matches before going back to Southend in July 1950.

Mark Stimson Defender Stimson started on match for Spurs and played one more as a sub, but left in June 1989 for £200,000 to join Newcastle United, where he stayed for four years, ending his time there in the promotion winning squad under Kevin Keegan.

Archie Turner Spent a spell at Newcastle from May 1902 after being signed from Derby County, scoring one goal in thirteen matches.  Joined Tottenham in January 1904 for £100 scoring five goals in five Southern League matches, before leaving for Southampton after four months.

Chris Waddle Lazy looking winger, who had a wonderful dribbling ability and could also finish well.

Joe Wilson Inside right was with Newcastle during the 1930s - playing 30 times and scoring five goals.  Made a war-time guest appearance in an away fixture against Arsenal at the Lane (!!) in a 3-3 draw.

Jonathan Woodgate Centre back who started with Middlesbrough and then went to Real Madrid before returning to the North-East with Newcastle.  An England international, his knee problems hampered his career and when he came to Spurs, it was an odd move, but his experience paid dividends straight away, scoring the winning goal in extra time of the League Cup Final in 2009 against Chelsea.  Left Spurs after a couple of seasons and joined Stoke City, before making the sentimental move back to the Riverside Stadium to sign for Middlesbrough.
