Spurs in History - 16th January

16th January, 1963

The End of the Road

Spurs 0 Burnley 3 FA Cup 3rd Round

The end of the road for the Spurs successful FA Cup winning team. After two seasons undefeated in fourteen F.A.Cup games, Spurs lost comprehensively to Burnley who finally gained revenge for defeats in the Semi-final in 1961 and the Final the following year.

Only Blanchflower and Medwin, through injury, were missing from the previous seasons’ successful teams. John Smith who had been signed from West Ham in 1960 but had few opportunities to play, replaced Blanchflower while Jones and Dyson resumed their role on the wings.

Team: Brown, Baker, Henry, Smith J., Norman, Mackay, Jones, White, Smith R., Greaves, Dyson.
