Spurs v Leeds United notes

05.09.1908 Tottenham’s first away match in the league.

25.08.1971 Tottenham’s away game against Leeds United was played at Boothferry Park, the home of Hull City FC, as Leeds were banned from playing games at Elland Road. The FA Disciplinary Committee ruled that the pitch invasion at a home match against West Bromwich Albion meant that their ground would be closed for a month, meaning playing four home fixtures on other club’s grounds.

24.02.2001 Alan Sugar’s last game as Spurs chairman.

23.08.2003 Leeds United substitute Aaron Lennon becomes the youngest Premier League player at that time aged just 16 years and 129 days.
