Spurs v Newcastle United notes

04.10.1997 Only four Spurs subs (Baardsen, Dominguez, Sinton, Nielsen) were named, as Gary Mabbutt was the fifth named sub, but had to replace John Scales, who sustained a calf injury before kick off.  It happened so late that the change was regarded as a substitution, although Premier League rules were changed for future instances of such an injury. 
15.01.1966 A new public address system made by Tannoy was trialled at White Hart Lane for the first time. 
29.01.1951 Lord Mountbatten was in the crowd to watch Spurs triumph 2-1 on a muddy pitch at White Hart Lane.
26.03.1910 Newcastle beat Swindon Town in the FA Cup semi-final, staged at White Hart Lane.


They are linked with both

Ossie Ardiles A Spurs legend, Ossie was an outstanding midfielder at White Hart Lane, making many headlines during his time at the club.  When he hung up his boots, he moved into management and left Swindon to take over the Magpies in March 1991.  He had a reputation for bringing through the talented youngsters at St. James’ Park, but the team were struggling in the Second Division and he was sacked in February 1992.
Sebastian Bassong -.
Eddie Birnie -.
Garry Brady -.
Nabil Bentaleb -.
Ivor Broadis Spent his early days at Spurs before moving to Cumbria with the RAF in the war.
Keith Burkinshaw A coach at Newcastle, Burkinshaw moved to Spurs as Assistant manager and then took over to become the second most successful Tottenham manager between the years of 1977 and 1984 – winning the FA Cup twice and the UEFA Cup.
Sol Campbell -.
Stephen Carr Came through Tottenham’s youth ranks to become an international defender who played 270 times (226 in the league) and score eight goals (seven league) for Spurs from September 1993 until his £2m move to St James’ Park in August 2004, but his appearances were limited due to injury, but he moved on to Birmingham City to play a part in their League Cup win of 2011.
Ray Clarke -.
Les Ferdinand 
Jim Fleming -.
Ruel Fox
Brad Friedel -.
Tony Galvin A Spurs winger from 1978 to 1988, Galvin was noted for his strong running and crossing ability in 273 matches for the Lilywhites.  On finishing his playing days, he was brought in at St. James’ Park by manager Ossie Ardiles as Assistant Manager.
Peter Garland -.
Paul Gascoigne Mercurial talent who made headlines on and off the pitch.  Started with the Magpies in 1980 on schoolboy terms before turning professional in 1985.  Scored 25 goals in just over 100 games before signed by Spurs for a record £2.2 million deal in 1988.  Played a major part in saving the club from extinction and winning the FA Cup in 1991, but was injured in the final and fortunate not to be sent off.  This set back his move to Lazio and he produced some sparkling performances for England and the other clubs he went on to play for but both Spurs and Newcastle saw the best of the skill that Paul Gascoigne possessed.

Chris Hughton .
Jim Iley .
Jermaine Jenas .
Peter McWilliam Newcastle player from 1902 to 1911, winning championship medals in 1907 and 1909, with an FA Cup medal in 1910, also playing on the losing side in 1905, 1906 and 1908.  Became Spurs manager in December 1912.  Won the Second Division, FA Cup and came runners-up in the First Division before leaving in 1927.  Returned to take charge from 1938 up to the start of World War II.
McWilliam was the first footballer to play in and then manage a FA Cup winning side.
John McTavish -.
Paul Moran -.
Scott Parker -.
Jack Richardson Signed for Spurs from Hamilton Academicals in 1924 and made his debut in 1927 at left back.  After 38 appearances, he moved to Reading for £500 in June 1929, where he played 128 games in five years at Elm Park.
Wayne Routledge -.
Kevin Scott -.
Joe Sibley A right winger who starred for Tottenham as a war-time guest player featuring in three matches during January 1942 scoring once.  After returning to his club – Southend United – Joe signed for Newcastle in February 1947 where he scored six goals in 32 first team matches before going back to Southend in July 1950.
Mark Stimson Defender Stimson started on match for Spurs and played one more as a sub, but left in June 1989 for £200,000 to join Newcastle United, where he stayed for four years, ending his time there in the promotion winning squad under Kevin Keegan.
Allan Taylor -.
Andros Townsend -.
Arthur Turner Known as “Archie”, Turner had a spell at Newcastle from May 1902 after being signed from Derby County, scoring one goal in thirteen matches.  Joined Tottenham in January 1904 for £100, scoring five goals in five Southern League matches, before leaving for Southampton after four months.
Chris Waddle Lazy looking winger that hid his pace and a player who had a wonderful dribbling ability with he could also finish well.  Signed for Newcastle in July 1980 and established a reputation as an “old-fashioned” winger who stuck to the touchline, but one who scored 46 goals in 170 league games.  Tottenham signed him for a tribunal set fee of £590,000 in July 1985 and he struggled in his first season as the team had a hard time, but in time he played some marvellous football, especially when Gascoigne joined him at The Lane from the Magpies.  A fan favourite, he was in the side that reached the 1987 FA Cup final and also finished third in the league and reached the League Cup semi-final in his time there before he was sold to Marseille for £4.5 million in July 1989, much to Gary Lineker’s disgust, as he had signed and was looking forward to linking up with Waddle.
Went on to play for a large number of other clubs before moving into a career as a radio summariser with the BBC.
Joe Wilson Inside right was with Newcastle during the 1930s – playing 30 times and scoring five goals.  Made a war-time guest appearance in an away fixture against Arsenal at the Lane in a 3-3 draw.
Jonathan Woodgate Centre back who started with Middlesbrough and then went to Real Madrid before returning to the North-East with Newcastle.  An England international, his knee problems hampered his career and when he came to Spurs, it was an odd move, but his experience paid dividends straight away, scoring the winning goal in extra time of the League Cup Final in 2009 against Chelsea.  Left Spurs after a couple of seasons and joined Stoke City, before making the sentimental move back to the Riverside Stadium to sign for Middlesbrough.
DeAndre Yedlin Young defender bought from Seattle Sounders, a controversial move, as one of his development teams claimed they were owed money in the deal that took him to Tottenham in 2014.  Blessed with blistering pace, he took some time to adapt to the Premier League and went on loan to Sunderland, but made only one appearance for Spurs and was sold to Newcastle for £5 million in 2016.  Has played over 100 matches for the Magpies at right back and has won 60+ caps for the US National Team.
