Spurs in History - 14th March

14th March, 1962

Spurs 1 Ipswich Town 3

This is the match that cost Spurs the chance of winning the ‘Double’ for a second successive season. If Spurs had won this game by a similar margin they would have been Champions on goal average.

As it was Spurs lost to Alf Ramsey’s team who had just been promoted. Ipswich won both games against Spurs and the goal scored by Jimmy Greaves was only a consolation when the whole season was taken into consideration.

Spurs had just qualified for the F.A.Cup semi-final and were in the European Cup semi-finals but they were unable to cope with Ipswich’s unorthodox game plan.
