Spurs in History - 29th January

29th January, 1910

The Steel Brothers - Bobby, Danny and Alex

Spurs 0 Bradford City 0 (1st Division)

A scoreless draw in Spurs second season in the Football League and their first in the First Division would appear to have little significance in the history of Spurs but its position of eminence is due to the make up of the team on that particular Saturday.

For the only time in Spurs history, three brothers appeared in the same team. Bobby Steel and Danny Steel had been almost ever present in the Spurs team during the first two seasons in the League and for this game their brother, Alex, made his one and only League appearance at right half. Danny played at centre half while Bobby played at inside forward.
