Spurs in History - 20th July

20th July, 2003

Oxford United 0 Spurs 3 (Pre-season)

Spurs continued their pre-season preparations by overcoming Oxford United.

After seasons of deliberation, they had finally signed Bobby Zamora from Brighton for a fee of £1.5 million two days previously. He made his debut in this game and played in the first half.

He immediately showed his potential by scoring twice, first after twenty minutes and then on the stroke of half-time. He was replaced for the second half by Robbie Keane who scored the third.

Subsequent events were to suggest that Zamora was best suited to scoring against lower league opposition. A player of great heart, his first touch often let him down and he went to West Ham the following January as part of the Jermain Defoe transfer.
