Today In Spurs History: April 2nd
1920 – Tottenham beat Wolves 4-2 at home courtesy of a hat-trick by Bert Bliss and a goal by Jimmy Cantrell. Spurs would win promotion to the first division, having been cheated out of their rightful place by the wretched Woolwich Wanderers.
1952 – Spurs benefit from a terrible refereeing decision to beat Huddersfield 1-0. An Eddie Baily corner hits the referee and rebounds to Bailey, who crosses for Len Duquemin to score. As the ball had been touched twice by Bailey in succession without any other player touching it, the goal should not have stood.
1966 – This day in 1966 saw the birth of one Teddy Sheringham. In two spells at the club Sheringham would play 277 games and score 124 goals. He was inducted into the Tottenham Hotspur Hall of Fame in 2008.
