11th May - Spurs in History

11th May, 1993

Arsenal 1 Spurs 3

The final game of the season and the last occasion when Spurs left Highbury with three points. Arsenal put out a weakened team due to their Cup commitments but that didn’t detract from the pleasure of the Spurs' supporters as the team completed the double over their North London rivals to finish eighth, two places above them.

Spurs goals were scored by Teddy Sheringham and a young Scottish player, John Hendry who got two.

However, unknown to the mass of Spurs supporters around the world, was the behind closed doors activities in the Board Room that was about to bring to light the great fall-out between Alan Sugar and Terry Venables (Pic: Manager, Terry Venables' last game in charge of Tottenham) and drag the club’s good name through the newspapers and the courts for some considerable time. This would be Venables’ last game with any responsibility for Spurs and what had seemed to be a glimmer of hope for a brighter future was to be extinguished beyond repair.

This was Spurs last win at Highbury.
