Spurs in History - 17th July
17th July, 1999
Lysekils FF 1 Spurs 7 (Pre-season).
Steffan Iversen was an exciting young player with European experience when he was signed by Gerry Francis. While making a promising start to his Spurs career, he struggled to fulfil that promise and often struggled with injury.
However, in preseason 1999 – 2000 he appeared to be on the way back to his best form. He was on fire where goal scoring was concerned. In the pre-season games he scored eleven goals including a hat-trick in this game and another in the following 3 – 0 win over GAIS.
In the season to follow he managed 14 in 36 League games and three in eight Cup appearances, his highest return for Spurs.
Injury and loss of form led to his subsequent departure.
