Teams we have played on this day
|1901||Spurs travelled North for the FA Cup Final replay to Bolton and the home club expected a bumper attendance after the size of the crowd for the first game. Unfortunately, the gate was disappointing – only 20,420 – mainly due to the cost of travelling to the game. The caterers at the match had overdone the number of pies for the day and were left with so many over they had to give them away. This has lead to this day being known as Pie Day in Bolton for that very reason !! Spurs took the game to Sheffield United, but Priest once again gave the Blades the lead. Spurs continued to play their own game and in the second half, John Cameron equalised. Smith gave Spurs the lead after a goalmouth scramble and then Sandy Brown sealed the FA Cup victory for Spurs with an 83rd minute goal. It meant that he had scored in every round of the FA Cup – the first man to do so and with 15 goals, he is still the highest goal-scorer in a season in the competition. The cup was presented to Spurs captain Jack Jones with coloured ribbons on, tied there for the first time by Spurs – a tradition continued to the present day. So, the little non-league club from Tottenham had won the FA Cup and even today, remain the only side from outside the league to do so.
This match also marked the end of the Spurs careers of David Haddow and Bob Stormont.
Tottenham had to play a Southern League game on the same day that was scheduled before the Cup Final was drawn and the team won handsomely 5-0.
