Spurs in History - 27th April

27th April, 1901

Non-League Spurs FA Cup Winners

Spurs 3 Sheffield United 1 F.A.CUP FINAL REPLAY at Bolton

Only 20,740 were present to see Spurs go a goal behind, five minutes before half-time. The goal had been against the run of play and Spurs continued to take the game to United and equalised after 55 minutes from John Cameron.

Spurs then went ahead when winger Smith scored and Sandy Brown ensured victory with a header from the third of three quick corners, with seven minutes remaining.

Brown had become the first player to score in every round of the Cup, scoring 15 goals. On the final whistle joyous Spurs fans invaded the pitch and when the team returned to London at 1.00am the next morning, the fans who had been waiting for three hours, gave them a tremendous reception.

Team: Clawley; Erentz, Tait; Morris, Hughes, Jones (Captain); Smith, Cameron, Brown, Copeland, Kirwan.
