Spurs played their first competitive match in the London Association Cup. Prior to this, all of Spurs games had been friendlies. Four hundred spectators attended the game against St Albans, a London-based business house.
The Spurs team included six of the club’s founder members but the goal scorers were not recorded. Spurs’ Cup success was short lived as they lost heavily in the next round to the Casuals, one of the biggest names in football’s early history.
