Spurs in History - 15th February

Ian and Roger in their QPR days, the twins were on opposite sides as
Roger made his debut for Spurs at Loftus Road

15th February, 1969

Queens Park Rangers 1 Spurs 1 1st Division

Earlier in the month Spurs had signed Roger Morgan, a left winger from Q.P.R. for £110,000, equaling the highest cash transfer fee between English clubs. Roger and his identical twin, Ian, had helped Q.P.R. gain promotion to the 1st Division and had played all their football together.

At the end of January Spurs had defeated Q.P.R. at White Hart Lane in a game re-arranged from November because of heavy rain. After signing, Roger Morgan had been unable to play in Spurs next match as he was cup-tied so his debut was at Loftus Road against his former club and facing his twin brother. The match was close and finished all square with Spurs goal being scored by Jimmy Greaves, his 30th of the season.
