Spurs in History - 21st November

21st November, 1931

Spurs 9 Port Vale 3 (2nd Division)

The first time that Spurs scored nine goals in a League game, something they have only done on a further two occasions.

Spurs had just missed out on promotion at the end of the previous season but the new season was proving a big disappointment although they had won their previous home game by 6-2 against Swansea.

Prior to the game Port Vale were above Spurs in the League table but Spurs ran out convincing winners.

Centre forward George Hunt scored twice and the rest of the goals came from the right side of the team. Right winger Willie Davies scored a hat-trick, inside right Jimmy Brain claimed two, while right half Dave Colquhoun and right back Albert Lyons scored one each, Lyons with a penalty.
