26th March - Spurs in History

26th March, 1921

1st Division

Sunderland 0 Spurs 1

Spurs had won promotion to the 1st Division the previous year with a record number of points. They made good progress in the top flight and as this was a year with a '1' their sights were firmly fixed on the FA Cup, having beaten Preston in the semi-final the previous weekend.

For this game, Spurs had an injury problem. Both of their goalkeepers, Alex Hunter and Bill Jacques, were out and they were replaced by full back, Tommy Clay.

He kept a clean sheet and Jimmy Seed scored the winning goal.

26th March, 1994

The last occasion that Spurs played on this day was at Everton in the Premiership. The previous season saw Spurs win at Goodison Park for only the second time in twenty three visits, but they had obviously taken a liking to the place and won with a goal scored by Steve Sedgeley.

Manager Christian Gross

Since 1993, Goodison Park has become one of the more productive grounds where Spurs have to visit, they have only lost twice in thirteen visits. Last season Noe Paramot scored his first goal for the club to bring Spurs three points and Christian Gross liked going there as manager. His first game in charge was a 2-0 win with goals from Ramon Vega and David Ginola, while his final game in charge of Tottenham was also a win at Goodison, 1-0, the goal coming from Les Ferdinand.
