Vic Buckingham 15.2.1941

They are linked with both

Darren Anderton Signed as a 20 year old winger from Portsmouth in 1992, Darren Anderton played 364  games for Spurs, despite the reputation he had lumbered on him for always being injured.  Scored 51 goals in his time, before moving to Birmingham City in 2004.  Also played for Wolverhampton Wanderers and signed for Bournemouth in 2006.  Played for 16 months and signed off with a stunning volley to beat Chester City in his last game with two minutes of his career left.

Richard Cooke Came into the Spurs first team having progressed through the youth ranks.  Quick but lightweight, he did make an immediate impact, scoring twice and getting on the bench for the UEFA Cup final in 1984, but only made 17 appearances before leaving for Bournemouth in 1987.  Stayed for two years before switching to Luton Town, but returned to the Cherries in 1991, before a knee injury caused him to retire in 1993.

Freddie Cox Played 144 games and scored 26 goals for Spurs between 1938-49 in a war interrupted career, before he went on to play for Bournemouth.

Charlie Daniels Came through the Spurs Academy, but left to join Leyton Orient in 2009.  Loaned to the Cherries in 2011 before signing full time in January 2012.

Jermain Defoe Went to Bournemouth as a youngster from West Ham on loan and broke a scoring record for goals in consecutive games, before singing for Spurs and becoming the fifth highest scorer in the club’s history at the time.  Later signed for Bournemouth permanently when at the end of his career.

Harry Hughes Played in the Bournemouth FA Cup tie of 1957 and went on to become the manager of the Spurs Shop in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Shwan Jalal Much travelled Spurs youth and reserve team keeper, who never got to play in the Tottenham first XI, but initially went to Dean Court on loan before making the move permanent.  Between 2008 and 2014, Shwan made over 150 appearances, but joined Bury.

Harry Redknapp Managed both clubs.  Took over a Dean Court in 1983 and avoided relegation to Division 4, turning things around to win the Division Three title in 1987.  Relegated from Second Division in 1990, Harry suffered serious injuries in a car crash and left Bournemouth in 1992 after making a good recovery.  Was boss at West Ham, Portsmouth and Southampton, before another spell at Pompey, from where Spurs hired him in October 2008.  Got spurs into the Champions League (reaching the quarter-finals) and despite a second fourth place finish, he was sacked on 13 June 2012 after failing to agree a new contract.

Adam Smith Young Spurs defender who made two first team appearances, but had already been on loan at Dean Court in 2010 before signing permanently in January 2014.

Neil Young Spurs youth product, who did not break into the first team, Neil Young signed for Bournemouth in 1994.  In 14 years, he made 483 appearances and captained the side until he left for Australia in 2008.
