Spurs in History - 23rd April

23rd April, 1921

Spurs 1 Wolverhampton Wanderers 0 F.A.CUP FINAL at Stamford Bridge

The year ends in ‘1’ and Spurs have reached their second final against 2nd Division, Wolves. Just before kick off a torrential thunderstorm turned the pitch into a quagmire making it very difficult for both teams to play any football, the ball constantly sticking in the mud.

One piece of inspiration from 20 year old winger, Jimmy Dimmock, after 55 minutes was enough to win the trophy for Spurs. Picking up the ball on the left wing he made progress then cut in, ignoring other team members, he escaped the defenders and his shot from fifteen yards skidded off the greasy surface, under the body of the Wolves goalkeeper.

Team: Hunter; Clay, McDonald; Smith, Walters, Grimsdell (Captain); Banks, Seed, Cantrell, Bliss, Dimmock.
