Spurs in History - 3rd February

3rd February, 1960

Spurs 13 Crewe Alexandra 2 (FA Cup 4th Round Replay)

Having survived a difficult game the previous Saturday, this F.A.Cup 4th Round Replay was over, long before half-time, providing Spurs with their biggest ever win.

Spurs dominated the game from the beginning and were a goal ahead after two minutes through Bobby Smith. Two more followed from Les Allen and Smith before Crewe scored but then Tommy Harmer scored Spurs fourth after 20 minutes. Amazingly, Spurs led 10-1 by half-time and added another three in the second half. Les Allen enjoyed the game scoring five times, Bobby Smith scored four and Cliff Jones completed a hat-trick, including a penalty.

This was an outstanding performance and will probably never be equalled. However, Spurs were defeated by Blackburn, the eventual Cup winners in the next round.
