Spurs v Hull City Notes

30.10.2013 The first meeting between the two clubs in the League Cup.


They are linked with both

Jack Acquaroff .

Stan Alexander .

Nick Barmby Much travelled little striker who started his career at Spurs and moved to Middlesbrough, Everton, Liverpool, Leeds United and Nottingham Forest (loan) before ending up at Hull City, his home-town club, where he was a player and the manager.

Jim Blyth .

John Bostock .

Fraizer Campbell .

Michael Dawson .

Andy Duncan .

Anthony Gardner Towering central defender bought from Port Vale, failed to fully realise his potential, although he did earn an England cap during his time at White Hart Lane.  When injuries started hitting him more regularly, he was allowed to leave and join Hull as their record signing at the time.

George Goldsmith Played for Hull City from 1928-1933, including the Third Division North title season of 1932-1933.  Played only one game for Spurs after signing in 1934 before leaving for Bolton in March 1935.

Foster Hedley Played for Hull City with a debut in 1928, before moving onto Nelson, Manchester City and Chester before signing for Spurs in November 1933.  Played five matches for the senior side, netting one goal and left to sign for Millwall in June 1937 for £250.

Tom Huddlestone Signed from Derby County, as a youngster for £1 million, Tom Huddlestone spent eight years at White Hart Lane, but failed to hold down a regular place in the team despite his excellent passing ability and fierce shooting.  As he appeared not to be sure of a starting position, Spurs accepted a £4.5 million offer from Hull in August 2013 and he moved to the newly promoted to the Premier League Tigers.

Jake Livermore Another young Spurs midfielder who had come up through the ranks, Jake Livermore joined Hull City on loan for the 2013-2014 season and helped them try to establish themselves after promotion to the Premier League.

George Maddison .

Dean Marney Young midfielder who had a good impact at Spurs, playing in a game against Everton and scoring twice, but failed to make the breakthrough and earn a regular first team place, so moved to Hull.  Helped them to promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs and proved a solid midfielder for the Tigers.

Ryan Mason .

Kevin Stewart .

Alton Thelwell

Mark Yeates Loaned to The Tigers.
