Spurs in History - 25th January

25th January, 1964
Spurs 3 Aston Villa 1 (1st Divison)

This was a season of transition as Bill Nicholson started to replace members of the ‘Double’ winning team. Injury had taken Blanchflower, Mackay and Medwin from the team and reserves were getting their opportunity.

For this game, Derek Possee replaced the injured Cliff Jones on the right wing for his only game of the season and scored on his debut. The other goals came from Jimmy Greaves and Terry Dyson.

Possee who had come through the Junior teams at Spurs, made a number of appearances in subsequent seasons before being transferred to Millwall in 1967 for £25,000.
