We turn back time and take a trip down mem­ory lane 1967

The Sunday Post (Inverness) - - Post Match -

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.
