We turn back time and take a trip down memory lane 1967
SPURS entertain Chelsea today in their first match as temporary tenants of Wembley while White Hart Lane is being modernised.
It’s a repeat of the 1967 FA Cup Final at the old Wembley, when a Scottish captain lifted the silverware to take the shine off the day for a Scottish manager.
Dave Mackay was captain of Spurs, and Tommy Docherty the manager of Chelsea on an afternoon when 100,000 packed into the ground with the Twin Towers.
Another Scot, Jimmy Robertson, gave Spurs a 40th minute lead, and Frank Saul doubled the North London side’s advantage midway through the second half.
Despite Bobby Tambling’s late counter for the Blues, who had Eddie McCreadie, Charlie Cooke and John Boyle in their ranks, Spurs held on the clinch the Cup.
It was to be Alan Gilzean’s only FA Cup winner’s medal in 10 years of tryiing at White Hart Lane.
