Spurs in History - 2nd June

2nd June, 1951


As Champions of the First Division for the first time in the Club’s history, a celebration banquet was held at the Savoy Hotel in London.

Over four hundred guests were present to mark this momentous occasion with representatives from all of the ninety two League clubs and other dignitaries. The Chairman bestowed glowing praise on the players who in successive seasons had won the Championship of the Second Division and then the Championship of the Football League.

He also paid tribute to the work of manager Arthur Rowe whose skilful handling of the players had brought such splendid results. He reported that for the second successive year, the Club’s average attendance for home League games was the largest in the country – a tribute to the fans.
