Spurs in History - 13th November

13th November, 1920

Oldham Athletic 2 Spurs 5 (1st Division)

In those days teams met home and away in successive weeks. Newly promoted from the Second Division Spurs were having a mixed season. They had lost home and away to Aston Villa and Burnley but had won home and away against Manchester United (1-0 & 4-1) and Chelsea (5-0 & 4-0).

Spurs had beaten Oldham 5-1 at White Hart Lane seven days earlier and a full strength side showing just one change completed an emphatic double over them. Jimmy Seed scored twice, just as he had done in the home game, centre forward Charlie Wilson also scored two and Bert Bliss scored once as he had done the previous week.

Spurs went on to finish sixth in the League but the team will be remembered for their Cup Final win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.
