Spurs in History - 27th March

27th March, 1965

Spurs 7 Wolverhampton Wanderers 4 1st Division

An eleven goal thriller. The Spurs goals came from Eddie Clayton, Les Allen, Alan Gilzean (2) and Cliff Jones (3).

A number of interesting facts about this game:
  • this was Les Allen’s last goal for Spurs (Pic: Ls Allen who was transferred to QPR and later became their manager),

  • Keith Weller a young forward made his debut and

  • Jimmy Greaves was playing and surprisingly did not score.
Wolves had scored first but Spurs equalized and at half-time the score was 1-1. With six minutes to go the score was 5-4 and then Jones scored two late goals for his hat-trick.

With six matches to play Spurs were fourth in the League but eleven points behind the top three teams.
