Spurs in History - 8th April

8th April, 1901

Spurs 4 West Bromwich Albion 0 F.A.Cup Semi-Final at Villa Park

The Spurs hero was Sandy Brown who scored all four goals as Spurs comprehensively defeated their League opponents. Brown had scored in every round of the Cup and now had a total of 12 Cup goals. All of the Spurs players deserve credit for this performance.

The game was scoreless at half-time but from the time that Brown headed the first goal just after the restart from a centre by John Kirwan, there was no doubting the result. The second came from a corner, the third was a shot from thirty yards and the fourth came after a passing movement took Spurs the length of the pitch. Spurs, as a non-League side, had reached the FA Cup Final for the first time where they would meet Sheffield United at Crystal Palace.
